Irish Soda Bread

Just sharing my recipe, feel free to share yours !!! Mine is more like a loaf cake than a savory bread, which is just the way i like it ! I have no idea where the recipe ever came from, because i got it from my sister years ago. I make this every year and usually serve it with lemon curd along side.

It'll warm the cockles of your heart !!! :) Happy (nearly) St. Patrick's Day everyone !!

6 tablespoons butter
3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
