Irish Soda Bread
Yield: 1 loafThis came out of the Holy Ghost Church Cookbook in Tiverton, Rhode Island. It's not St. Patrick's Day if I don't make a few loafs.
Ingredients:2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seed (optional)
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup softened currants (or raisins)
Instructions:In a large bowl mix together first four ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix together next four ingredients.
Add wet mixture to dry mixture, then mix in currants.
Pour into a greased pie dish. Slice a cross on the top of the batter. Top with a little butter and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
