Irish Soda Bread


This is one of my favorites. I love raisins. Usually I make this bread on Saint Patrick’s Day. However, I do love to make this anytime of the year. It’s just so good. I just can’t resist it. It’s best right when it comes out of the oven with a little butter slathered on it. Yummm!

Every time I make this this break my little guy likes to help. He’ll knead it and add stuff to the dough. I love that it’s an opportunity for us to bond and spend time together.  It’s so important that we spend time with our children and teach them how to live life when they are older.

4 C all purpose flour

1/4 C sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

1 1/4 C buttermilk

1/4 C canola oil

1 C raisins

Mix in a large bowl flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a second bowl combine buttermilk, eggs, and canola oil. In the bowl of flour mix make a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk mixture. Add raisins and begin to stir to combine. Cut an x in the top of the bread and bake. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and done through.
