Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread
A very easy bread to make. Takes a bit of time to bake, though. A little bland, but tastes better after it's been sitting for a bit. Lovely for TEA TOIME, or maybe St. Patty's day to accompany your kegs n eggs.

  • 3 cups flour

  • 1 tbsp. baking powder

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 egg

  • 2 cups buttermilk

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  • 1/2 cup or so raisins

  1. Preheat oven to 325°, grease a loaf pan.

  2. Combine in a big bowl: all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, baking soda). In a seperate, more medium-sized bowl, lightly beat the egg, and mix in the buttermilk.

  3. Mix wet mixture to dry mixture. Mix in butter and raisins.

  4. Pour into greased pan. It won't rise a huge amount, so don't get antsy. Bake 65-70 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out "clean."
