Food Network Magazine Soda-Bread Biscuits

We are big fans of baked goods in my household and would be horrible on a low-carb diet. My kids have been known to eat an entire loaf of homemade bread in a day and my husband has a soft spot for brownies. As for me I haven't met a scone, muffin, or biscuit that I don't love. Given my family's love of baked goods I am always looking for new recipes to serve as dinner sides. One of our favorite breads is Irish soda bread, so I was intrigued when a recent issue of the Food Network Magazine had a recipe for Soda-Bread Biscuits.

This recipe has 8 ingredients. It takes approximately 30 minutes to prep and bake and makes six biscuits. I had no problems finding any of the ingredients at my local grocery store and made no ingredient modifications. I chose to make larger biscuits, so I had a total of six. I turned my baking sheets halfway through the baking time in order to prevent burning. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.

The Irish soda bread recipe that I normally use is very traditional, and I love it. However, for biscuits I love experimenting with new flavors and this recipe does a nice job of combining the idea of soda bread with the delicious flavors of caraway and raisins in a biscuit. These were perfect for a side at dinner and they tasted great with melted butter. Overall, an easy biscuit recipe that my whole family enjoyed.

For the recipe go to Soda-Bread Biscuits.

  1. We couldn't do low-carb around here either and everything tastes better with melted butter! These sound tasty and easy (my fav recipe!). Thanks, Frugal!

    2. I made these biscuits today (St. Paddy's, of course!) and they came out wonderful! I doubled the batch, so we'll have some with breakfast tomorrow. I won't wait for St. Paddy's day to make them again! Thanks, Frugal! :)

    3. I'm glad that they turned out well! I doubled the batch the second time I made these also since they don't make many biscuits with a single recipe. I made soda bread for St. Paddy's day, my kids were so excited to help me in the kitchen :)

  3. These sound so good! I have only made soda bread once before, even then, not sure it was what I expected. These will be wonderful with a bowl of soup for dinner, thanks.

    1. I have one recipe that I use all the time that I love, but every other recipe for soda bread I have tried I haven't liked. I liked these biscuits because the flavor from the caraway seeds and raisins worked really well together. They would be great with soup!
