Leprechaun sized Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda bread is made with only a few ingredients and is one of the easier breads to make as it doesn’t require kneeding or waiting time to rise. The buttermilk is key to activating the baking soda and powder for the bread to rise so don’t use regular milk. We are going to make individual leprechaun sized “breads” in a muffin tin rather than traditional loaf so everyone gets their fair share. This recipe was inspired by theginghamapron.com
