Another cold snap here in NYC is pushing spring just a little further away. I like to think of it as a reason for warming up the kitchen with some extra goodness.
To get us started I've added some ingredients beyond the basics, beyond traditional Irish soda bread recipes. This one, with vanilla and raisins, is a touch sweet so it actually makes a perfect bread for mornings and brunch. Alternatively, give it a go for your afternoon snack and it'll be a great side for a savory roast or lamb dish.
