Irish Soda Bread

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.

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 2Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  3. 3Stir in buttermilk, butter and egg until well mixed; stir in raisins.
  4. 4Knead several times on a lightly floured board then shape into a ball.
  5. 5Place on prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly.
  6. 6Cut 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.
