Irish Soda Bread by

Source: www.loveyourraisins.com

Irish Soda Bread is a dense quick bread that uses baking soda for leavening, rather than yeast, making it a quick and easy recipe to bake at home. Various recipes for soda bread are popular throughout Ireland, but American versions of Irish Soda Bread traditionally include California raisins, which add a scrumptious sweetness and also help to keep the soda bread moist.

Ingredients

3 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 egg
1 cup California raisins

Instructions

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. Knead several times on a lightly floured board then shape into a ball. Place on prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly. 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.
