Ilva, of Lucullian Delights, was our host kitchen for May.  She made a bread from one of my favorite places: The Ballymaloe House, Ireland.  Logo

When we lived in Ireland it was only an hour's drive and always a treat to visit.

Because I was off playing with family I missed making this easy White Soda Bread with Herbs.

According to the Babes that did make it it's a snap – and delicious besides.

I do love a good soda bread…. I love anything that can be whipped up at the last minute!

Visit Ilva's blog for the recipe and the details on being a Bread Baking Buddy this month.

Bread Baking Babes at Ballymaloe — 8 Comments

  1. There’s still time to add your photo to the others, Katie! (This bread really does take no time at all to make and bake.)

  2. Lucky you Katie, I have both the bread book and the Forgotten Skills of Cooking-both fantastic and I envy you who’s been THERE!

  3. I loved everyone’s bread…. And I will be making this, after I get my life back on track (assuming that’s possible with our puppies). Ballymaloe is lovely. We stayed there when we went back to Ireland a few years ago – and it had become quite famous by then. Not so when we first visited. I’m ready to go back to Ireland anytime!
