Saint Patrick's Day: Irish Soda Bread Cupcakes

 I love Irish Soda Bread, I enjoyed this recipe last year.  I know it's a little early to be talking green and clovers, but.....early is the name of my game.  This year I decided to see if I could merge my love of bread and cupcakes and I found a great recipe on taste of home.  This was very tasty, a little less dense than the traditional bread.  The carraway seeds give it a different flavor, you could leave them out if you wanted (I might next time), but....I really did enjoy them. 
Here's the recipe if you want baby Irish Soda Breads this year.  Everythign is cute in mini.
