    Irish soda bread.

    I am taking a mini course in Irish baking, and we made Irish soda bread in our first class. It was delicious, so I am posting the receipe if anyone wants to give it a go.


    Ingredients:

    2 cups all purpose flour
    3 tablespoons white sugar
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    5 tablespoons of softened butter
    1/2 to 3/4 cup buttermilk
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 cup raisins

    Directions

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
    Par boil raisins for 5-10 minutes until softened
    In a large pan sift flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add softened butter and mix in flour. Stir in 1/2 to 3/4 cup buttermilk until dough is moistened. Place onto floured board and kneaqd lightly. Shape into a round loaf. Using a sharp knife lightly put a cross on top of the bread. Then brush with a beaten egg. Bake 40-50 m inutes or until toothpick inserted into the center of loaf come out clean. It really helps to sift the flour twice before using!

    This makes a smallish loaf, but if you wish you can double the receipe. Enjoy with (what else?) Irish tea!

    My Irish grannie always used caraway seeds too! I don't know why this receipie doesn't have them, but throw them in for even better flavor.
    The day I made mine I also made a very non-traditional loaf filled with things I love. I used the basic receipe, but threw in cranberries and chocolate bits along with chopped walnuts. Yum.
