Greetings: I promised that I would bake Irish soda bread for my work mates in honor of St Patty's Day. This will mean making 3 loaves, 2 for work and one for the little woman. My question: As this bread is inherently dry, is it feasible to bake over the weekend and freeze. It will be a logistical problem to do this work the night before (Monday). My wife the purist says don't make in advance and freeze. I said I could add a bit of the butter to the batter to help moisten the finished crumb. We agreed the chowhounders would be the final word. Thanks for your replies.
