Happy St. Patrick's Day 2019

Friday, March 15, 2019



Hello blog friends.  I love celebrating St. Patrick's Day and for the past few years I've posted this recipe for Irish Soda Bread on the blog.  


Irish Soda Bread is one of my favorite breads and I was so happy when this recipe was given to me by our friend and his mom who was from Ireland.




This recipe is so simple and easy to make and tastes best made warm right out of the oven and smothered with some butter.




I bake this bread every year and I hope you will enjoy this Irish Soda Bread recipe as much as we do.





IRISH SODA BREAD RECIPE

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups regular flour
1 egg
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1/2 stick margarine
1 cup raisins
1/4 box caraway seeds
3 teaspoons baking powder 
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
(Dash of nutmeg or cinnamon - if desired)

DIRECTIONS:

All ingredients at room temperature

Use shallow greased 9" baking tin.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Bring raisins to boiling point only.  Drain and cool.  Sift together all dry ingredients.  Rub in margarine.  Beat egg and buttermilk together.  Add to mixture using a wooden spoon.  Fold in raisins.  Mixture will be on the dry side- light dough.  Roll into baking tin.  Smooth top with spoon.  Bake 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees.  Reduce temperature to 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.  Cool on rack thoroughly.  Glaze with melted sugar (2 tablespoons) in 1/2 oz. boiling water.  Top of cake only, sprinkle top with cinnamon sugar.  Slice and serve with butter.

Enjoy!

**  NOTE:  I did not use the caraway seeds or the sugar glaze on top of bread that the recipe calls for, and it still tasted amazing.







Have a wonderful Friday and weekend.


WISHING YOU ALL A HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

  6. The recipe sounds great, Julie. I'm not a fan of caraway seeds in Irish Soda Bread, and would leave them out, too. I think the glaze sounds yummy!
