You don’t have to be Irish to enjoy this Irish soda bread!  It is one of my absolute favorite things to eat around St. Patrick’s Day, warmed up and slathered with butter and a drizzle of honey.

     I took the traditional Irish soda bread recipe and shrunk it!  I also added a sticky twist of my own.  Using my mini muffin tin, I made tiny bite sized loaves of the soda bread and gave it a “bath” of melted honey butter!

FUN FACT: Why do they cut a cross on the dough?  There are a few legends stating that it was originally done as s superstition and brought good luck, or just helps you divide the bread easier once it its baked. You can decide!

  4. Next, spray your mini muffin tin with non-stick spray and fill each cup to the rim with dough.  Press down a bit, and using a knife, slice a “+" on top of each dough ball about 1 1/2 inch deep.

  5. In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and honey together for about 35 seconds until melted.  Stir to combine.  Using a basting brush, brush the melted butter and honey mixture onto each ball of dough.  Save the other half of butter mixture.

  7. You will know your mini bread bites are ready when the top is a deep golden color.  As soon as you take it out of the oven, brush on the remainder of the melted butter and honey mixture.  Let it sit a few minutes, giving it time to soak into the bread.  It's best to eat this warm, but any time is great!
