Irish Soda Bread

Here's a recipe to make for your family in celebration of St. Patty's Day! It seems the main ingredients in traditional Irish Soda Bread are flour, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk. Most recipes have raisins or caraway seeds. I hope you'll enjoy this one!

2 cups flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon caraway seeds (optional)
1/2 cup chopped raisins (I used golden)
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar (for sprinkling)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and caraway seeds. Mix in chopped raisins. Add egg, buttermilk, and butter. Stir until moistened. Knead 6-8 times. Shape into a round loaf and place on a parchment- lined baking sheet. Slice a large cross through the center. Sprinkle top with sugar. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm. 1 loaf.

  1. I’ve always wanted to try this, now that I know how easy it is to make, I shall.
    Except for the buttermilk, don’t keep that on stock.
    Oh well.
