One of my favorite traditional recipes is Irish Soda Bread. It's so distinctive and we've been making it for many years. When I looked up a few online recipes, I've found that both caraway seeds and raising are optional! Don't do it - put BOTH in your recipe, because they compliment each other in a very unique (and tasty) way!
Here's one that's similar to my family's recipe: https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/irish_soda_bread/
