Irish Soda Bread with Raisins

  • Yield 10 servings
  • Prep 10 mins
  • Cook 50 mins

Soda breads are a snap to make—no rising and very little kneading.

Ingredients

5 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs - beaten
1 stick butter - softened
1 1/4 cups raisins
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 to 2 cups buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir in buttermilk, butter and egg until well mixed; stir in raisins.
  2. Knead several times on a lightly floured board then shape into a ball. Place on prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly.
  3. Cut a small x in the top and bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a sharp knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
