Yes, I know, not a very original recipe, but it is one of the tastier versions that I have eaten.
Still time to bake one, I don't know how it is in your area, but, where I live, the week before St.Patrick's Day buttermilk becomes a hot commodity and hard to find.
Ready to go into the oven. The batter was not colorful or pretty so I didn't photograph the mixing process.
After baking for fifty minutes. My kitchen smelled so good.
It comes out of my baking pan perfectly, and it has the design which is on the dish. (This is a poor photo and my lighting is very bad, too.)
Here is the recipe which is printed on the pan.
Irish Soda Bread
3 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups raisins
(I only had 1 cup of them)
1 tablespoon caraway seeds (optional, I used)
Mix dry ingredients together
1 1/3 cups buttermilk (I used low fat)
2 eggs, beaten
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix liquid ingredients and combine with the dry, mixing til well blended. Pour into a greased and floured pan (I used non-stick spray). Bake 350 oven for 50-60 minutes.
I will be joining Potpourri Friday, Foodie Friday and Seasonal Sundays. Stop by and say hi to our hostesses.
