Irish Soda Bread

Irish soda bread is a tasty St. Patrick's Day tradition which gets its name – and its leavening – from baking soda (rather than yeast). It is customary to cut a cross on the top of the loaf, possibly “to let the fairies out.” Apparently, trapped fairies will curse your bread – or you. (Eek!)
