Irish Soda Bread

Friday, March 18, 2011

Hello. I'm sorry I'm a day short of blogging this recipe but I want to share it with you. This is not your typical frying pan Irish Soda Bread. This is nice, moist and cake-like. It's very easy to make and a real crowd pleaser. I suggest that you do not try to half this recipe. I've tried several times and it doesn't come out right. 

Irish Soda Bread

6 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
6 oz butter
1 cup raisins
1 quart buttermilk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Mix dry ingredients in large bowl. Cut in butter. Add raisins, mix until coated. Add buttermilk, a little at a time. The dough will be wet and soft.

Bake in two buttered pie plates for about an hour or until tops are golden brown. Make sure you draw a cross on top of each of the cakes as this is the traditional way the cakes are made.
