Most of these recipes involve mixing up ingredients and popping them into a slow cooker for a prescribed number of hours.

Authentic Irish Soda Bread Recipe Photo: Anna Monette Roberts Many St. Patrick's Days ago when I first started working for POPSUGAR, my colleagues Maggie and Lizzy Eisenberg brought in this Irish soda bread, courtesy of their mother, along with a huge tub of Kerrygold butter. Never in my life had I ever experienced either, so I toasted a slice of the raisiny bread and slapped a generous pat of butter over the top. The butter seeped through the bottom of the warm toast, and the instant I took a bite, I became a Kerrygold convert (here's a story on how deep my love runneth) and a soda bread supporter for life.
