Irish_Soda-_Bread_Pudding Soda_Bread_Pudding Irish_Soda_Bread_Pudding_recipe Hey Guys! St Patty’s is tomorrow, and I’m sure many have already been celebrating since the weekend. Since I don’t really “party” these days, I usually celebrate things with food. :) Today we have turned our Irish Soda Bread, from this past saturday, into a deliciously simple Irish Soda Bread Pudding. We’ve also topped it with our homemade cajeta, but you can always sub it out for dulce de leche or even a simple (salted) caramel sauce.

This is such a great weekend meal, especially on those days where you plan on staying in your pajamas and watch movies all day. I love those days. This also holds pretty well and can be reheated easily. Enjoy! xx, Jenny

    How have I never thought of this??? I bake Irish Soda Bread year-round (because I am dedicated to carbs like that), but until now, I’d never thought to turn it into bread pudding. Mind. Blown. Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

    What a great idea to use leftover Irish Soda Bread to make bread pudding. I will have to remember that for next time. Love the combination of the blueberries in the bread and the orange flavouring of the bread pudding!

    I’ve got this in the oven right now! One thing though I don’t think you should put preheat the oven as the first direction and then say let the moisture sit for 30 minutes before baking. Why does the oven need to be preheated so early? Ya feel me?

        It`s a loaf of bread commonly baked in Ireland. Sort of looks like a giant scone. Google Irish Soda Bread for the recipe or stop in a bakery around St. Patrick’s Day to buy a loaf.

    Greetings! I love the Irish Soda Bread recipe and will make it asap. My other question is about the blue enamel pan it is served in. It is so similar to one I just threw away after 37 years of use. Can you send me information regarding purchasing another one. I don’t have a name for it. Mine had an element underneath the pan to cook with on top of my stove.
