|Slices of delicious Soda Bread|
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY TO ALL!!
Irish Soda Bread
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup of sugar ( If you like it sweeter you could add up to 1/2 cup)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup raisins
1 teaspoon caraway seeds (optional)
1 cup buttermilk
Mix all dry ingredients. Cut in butter as for pie. Then add buttermilk and mix. Place in a greased baking dish. Cut a cross in the top. It's traditional! I use a pyrex 8 inch casserole. Bake in a 375° oven for 10 minutes, then turn oven down to 350° for 40 minutes.
*Substitute for buttermilk--1 Tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar added to milk to make one cup. Let stand 5 minutes.
