I got this recipe from a newspaper insert and gave it a try. It is a very heavy type bread, but was quick and easy.
Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead one minute. Shape into a ball and set on baking sheet. Press into a 6-inch circle and cut a cross in the top. Bake 40 minutes or until well browned and loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
For 1 1/2 cups, I used 1 tablespoon and 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice into the measuring cup then added enough milk to make the 1 1/2 cups required for the recipe. Let stand five minutes before using.

Does anyone have a good Irish soda bread recipe?

Hint 1: If the top is getting too dark while baking, tent the
bread with some aluminum foil.
Hint 2: If you use a cast iron skillet to cook the bread in
the oven, be very careful when you take the pan out. It's
easy to forget that the handle is extremely hot. Cool the
handle with an ice cube, or put a pot holder over it.
Transfer bread to a rack to let cool briefly. Serve bread
warm, at room temperature, or sliced and toasted. (11/20/2007)
