Easy Irish Soda Bread
Every year, around St. Patrick’s Day, I make Irish Soda bread. It has become one of my favorite traditions and a favorite bread of mine. It’s such an easy bread to make, and delicious too! My kid’s love it! What I like about it is it’s not too sweet. It almost has the sweetness of a scone, maybe even less than that.
Here’s how make this super easy bread:1) Combine all your dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, & salt) whisk together until combined.
2) In a separate bowl, whisk together all your wet ingredients: buttermilk, melted butter, & eggs.
3) Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and mix together with a wooden spoon.
4) Finally, fold your raisins in.
5) Spray a 9 inch round pan with nonstick cooking spray and spread the batter evenly. Bake until nice & golden brown.
My favorite way to eat this is fresh out of the oven with a pat of butter! Delicious
- 3 cups flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar together… set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter. (Make sure melted butter has cooled a little… if its too hot, you’ll scramble the eggs.)
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Stir together with a wooden spoon. Fold in the raisins.
You can use either a loaf pan of a round 9 inch cake pan. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Spread dough evenly into pan.
Bake for about 40-50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
