Like crooked teeth or wavy hair, family recipes enjoy constant re-invention as they are passed down from generation to generation.
Some family recipes live on for centuries, like my maternal family’s mint-infused take on traditional pierogies, while other culinary quirks are best enjoyed by immediate family members, namely my brothers’ collective penchant for anything lathered in sour cream.
We recently asked our Facebook friends if they had a family recipe that’s been passed down to you. We were inspired by Erin Hilburn‘s response of “100-year old Irish Soda Bread.” A recipe over 100 years old?! That must be some delicious soda bread!
We tried our hand at making traditional Irish Soda Bread, thanks to Erin’s awesome suggestion!

Yummm. Buttermilk makes everything better, this looks delicious! I just whipped up a banana + coconut loaf of bread, I feel like now is the perfect time of the year for breads!
Oh, thanks for the recipe. I love Irish soda bread!
Challah French Toast
Combining my mother’s never-fail recipe for French Toast with my new religion (Judaism), my Challah FT is sure to impress.
Batter: 2 eggs
1/2 C (soy or almond) milk
1/2 C orange juice
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
Cut the challah into 1″ slices and let it get stale over night. The next day, roll each piece in the batter mixture until all of it is completely soaked up. Fry in a pan et voila! You have a Jewish take on French Toast!
That sounds really good, Danielle! I’ve never tried orange juice in my FT, but now I will!
My mother-in-law makes soda bread all the time. Thing is hers is always hard as a rock and doesn’t taste too good to me 🙁 This one looks good though.
This is just like the soda bread my mother makes! (We must have secretly related Irish relatives) 😉
