Here is Irish Soda Bread No. 1 -- the recipe my Granny made, with the exception that she used lard instead of butter (since I don't keep lard around and prefer the taste of butter). It is a more dense bread than Recipe No. 2 which is also a little sweeter due to the sugar sprinkled on top (and really tasty because of that). They look the same, this recipe making a larger loaf than the other one.
