Grandma Peg’s Irish Soda Bread

Shared by Erin

This is our family’s favorite Irish tradition. Beats corned beef and cabbage by a mile. My mom makes about 20 loaves each year. Yummm.

Makes two loaves

4 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 Tablespoon baking powder

1 Teaspoon salt

1 Teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup butter

2 cups raisins

1 Tablespoon caraway seeds

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

1 egg

Blend together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.

Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.

Add raisins, caraway seeds, buttermilk and egg.

Stir until blended.

Knead on a floured board until smooth. (about 1 minute)

Shape dough into 2 balls and place in 2 greased 8 inch pans.

Flatten to fill pans.

Cut a deep cross in top of each loaf.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes or until done.
