Easy Irish Soda Bread Recipe

Thursday, March 5, 2020


Hello blog friends.  

I hope you are enjoying the week and Happy March. 🍀

I love making Irish Soda Bread this time of year.

I was given this recipe from a family friend a few years ago.  This bread is so easy to make and it tastes great with butter spread on top.  

I've been sharing this recipe on the blog ever since and it's just in time to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.





EASY 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.

  7. Julie, that looks delightful! I'd have that for dessert--I don't like overly sweet desserts. I make quite a savory Irish soda bread myself, but I'd love this one as well!
