Irish Soda Bread

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. My Grandmother loved St. Patrick’s Day. She always wanted to be Irish, so we always celebrated by eating Corned Beef and Cabbage. Hope you can be Irish for a day too.

Irish Soda Bread

4 cup all-purpose flour ¼ cup sugar 1 Tbsp. Baking powder 1 tsp. Salt 1 ½ tsp. Baking Soda 1/3 cup Cold Butter cut into cubes 1 cup raisins (optional) 1 ½ cup buttermilk 1 egg

Blend dry ingredients in a food processor. Add the butter and process until it becomes a course meal. Put this flour mixture into a large bowl. In a measuring cup add buttermilk, and mix the egg, and raisins (if using). Stir into flour mixture. Knead for 1 minute. Shape dough into 2 balls, put each ball into a greased 8” round cake pan. Flatten just a bit. Cut a deep X in the top each loaf. This helps the dough to expand. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve warm with butter. *To make Gluten Free use a Gluten Free Baking mix in place of the regular flour.
