Irish Soda Bread




Ingredients

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • 2 Tablespoons caraway seeds
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Add raisins and caraway seeds.
  3. Add buttermilk all at once and mix.
  4. Knead the dough on a lightly floured board. (To knead, press the dough flat, fold it in half, turn the dough, and repeat.) Form into a round loaf on a well-greased baking sheet.
  5. With a knife, carefully mark an X across the top of the loaf. Lay a piece of foil over the loaf. Bake for 5 minutes.
  6. Lower heat to 250°F and bake 30 minutes more. Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes, until the loaf is slightly browned.
  7. Cut into wedges and serve with butter.
Serves 10 to 12.
