Everything Soda Bread

When I came across this recipe – I just knew I had to try it!  I also sent the recipe to many family members.  One of my aunts made the bread before I did and gave me some to try –  delicious!  Stella and I both thought it was an everything bagel in a bread version.  We served this at our game night and it was a BIG hit and the recipe was shared with even more.

This bread is so easy – no raising time, delicious plain, with a soup, toasted with eggs – yummy!

This recipe was found off the Mountain Rose website under the name Seedy Salted Soda Bread, but we like the Everything Soda Bread name.

The crust is hard and crunchy with a soft inside – the taste – wonderful – bursting with all the flavors from the seeds. I would like to try this recipe with soaked/sprouted seeds – hoping I can remember the next time I make it – which will be soon! Thank you Mountain Rose for sharing this wonderful recipe!
