Here's your soda farl (like a quarter of a loaf of soda bread) - what are you going to put on it? Butter, cheese, meat, Jam or something outlandish like prunes and custard? Be imaginative please. LOL.

LOL. I know someone that would though! Nothing wrong with peach jam. So long as I don't have to eat it. Apricot is even worse.

I'm going to smother it in mayonnaise then top that with a leaf or romaine lettuce, 2 thick slices of tomato, 3 crisp slices of bacon, and two slices of sharp american cheese. Then I'm going to spend an extra 3 hours in the gym today because now i have to go make myself a B.L.T. and my the last thing my hips need are bacon and mayo.

Ooh yum, thanks! I'm going to toast it and put some butter on it. Just feel like eating that right now. I am sometimes known for eating strange food combinations (lasagne and Branston pickle being one of my most recent :) But some of your other suggestions just don't really do it for me, especially the prunes, meat and jam (although I appreciate that you didn't necessarily mean together..)

Try it, it's delicious! No, but in my last job I was kind of known for these unusual (although obviously delicious) combinations. So when I was pregnant, they expected that my tastes would reverse, and that I would start to like very normal, bland, conservative food! It didn't happen, lol!

If you really want a sweet edge add a little bit of raspberry jelly or jam to the cream cheese. Yum.

That all sounds good. Soda bread is made using Bicarbonate of Soda and Baking Powder to raise the bread rather then yeast.

Be imaginative? Oh, OK then. Not that I've ever HAD soda farl, but if I were to be offered a piece, I'd probably cover it liberally with the collective feelings of human discontent and negativity so I may pass them out through the back-end in due course as they should be! If this wasn't an option, I'd probably go for some camembert cheese and Beluga.

They implied only? What a coward! Truffle shavings would be a wonderful addition actually and would offset the camembert flavour very well. As for the Beluga, I have a small portion remaining from some years ago. It has fur on it, but I'm sure I can scrub that off just fine!

LOL..try it, you might be more surprised at how much your wife enjoys it. My son is an excellent cook, and we frequently cook together. He thinks of combinations that I wouldn't have thought of. Sometimes he shucks me out of the kitchen and does the whole meal. I shows love and appreciation to get a day off once in a while.

I have never had soda bread. I would first try a taste without anything on it. Then I would try it with butter. Then I would like to try it with a bit of jelly. If that all goes well, then I would try it with Miracle Whip and lunch meat. I have heard of soda bread but have never had the opportunity to try it.

I'd send you some. But it might be a tad stale by the time that it go there. It is best warm with fresh butter. But you can put what you like on it. Jelly would go well for sure.

Hi, p1kef1sh! I have never heard of soda bread before! If I was making up this bread, I would put, cheese, turkey, mayo, tomato slices, lettuce, sour cream, mustard, bacon,, cucumbers, red sliced onions, jalepeno peppers and black pepper. I will also throw in a tad bit of ketchup and oregano. I wonder what does soda bread taste like??? If, it is sweet, I will have to reduce some of the ingredients above.. I will have to add, apple jelly and cinnamon to it. I may put some strawberries and cool whip on the top of it!

Prunes? No me thanks. LOL. I made two loaves this year for the first time and they came out good. One was served with dinner (corned beef and cabbage), the other I was going to use the corned beef hash...except that there wasn't any left. So I'm planning on using it for French toast. That'll be an international affair, Irish bread, French toast and New England maple syrup.

You and yours are welcome anytime! I'll make a few more loaves...lol. Out of curiosity, what is served there for St Patty's Day. I've read that the 'traditional' corned beef and cabbage is really not 'traditional'. Growing up outside of Boston MA, with it's Irish roots, that was what I grew up with. What should it be?
@p1kef1sh (45638)

England does not "celebrate" St Patrick's Day at all. There is a modern trend in bars to make a bit of a fuss about it, but that's largely to increase sales of Guinness. England has its own Saint. St George. Who wasn't English at all. We don't do much in his name either.

The soda in soda bread is not the same as soda in soda pop, Riyasam. Soda bread is made with baking soda (and cream of tartar) as the raising agent rather than yeast. I can see that P1kef1sh is a master of it - his has a nice even, light texture.

The recipe is on my Facebook account. Essentially it is bread that uses bicarbonate of soda and baking powder instead of yeast to rise the bread. Lovely.
