Line two large cookie sheet pans with baking parchment paper. Next, using a large baking spoon, scoop out Irish Soda Bread batter and evenly distribute the dough, so both sheet pans have an equal amount of mixture.

I love this bread; it's easy to make and truly one of my family's favorites.
You can also use a loaf pan, springform pan, tube pan, etc. Just make sure to grease or spray your pan well.
