Irish Soda Bread

by

Yield: Makes 1 loaf, or 6 servings.

A wonderful treat warm from the oven on a chilly winter morning, this bread is even easier to make than muffins. Serve soon after baking, as it does not keep well. If buttermilk isn't an ingredient you normally have on hand, purchase powdered buttermilk - wonderfully convenient and just as good as whole buttermilk. –The Bark Eater, Keene, New York

Ingredients:

  • 3-1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • Raisins to taste
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375°F. In a mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and raisins. Add the buttermilk and melted butter and stir to form a smooth dough. Mold the dough into a loaf on a greased baking sheet with edges. Bake 35-40 minutes.
