There is nothing quite like the smell of fresh bread and if you bake it yourself there is a great sense of achievement.
Sometimes recipes for baking bread take a long time, so this recipe for Irish soda bread is perfect to introduce the kids to baking bread as it is a fast process and difficult to get wrong.
All the ingredients can be mixed together in one bowl so that saves on the washing up!
You can bake the bread in a loaf tin, or as we did, just place it on a baking tray.
The kids love to shape the Irish soda bread loaf and then ‘score’ it with a pattern.
