Yum! I love this kind of bread. I will definitely make this recipe again.
This was simplicity itself, after the Rugelach. Four ingredients...ahhh. I was a bit skeptical, since I have made many loaves of Irish Soda Bread, but never made a white loaf without any butter in it. The two types that my grandmother used to make (and that I have continued to make) are "Brown" (kind of like this recipe, but with the Irish-style whole wheat flour plus wheat germ) and "White" (more of a cake-like bread with dried fruit and plenty of butter in the dough). But, I should have know to trust in Marion Cunningham ;-) I loved the result - it was plain, but not too plain.
The dough seemed rather wet:
It was great spread with jam for a mid-morning snack with tea.
