Another Irish Soda Bread Recipe
Author: Kitchens
  • 6 Cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 pound Raisins
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • caraway seeds to taste (usually 1/8 Cup)
  • 1 Quart buttermilk
  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a LARGE bowl. Mix in caraway and raisins. Mix in buttermilk.
  2. It helps to use your hands to mix this because the dough is stickey. DO NOT USE AN ELECTRIC MIXER. We did this a couple of times and the bread came out very flat.
  3. Divide batter into two buttered cake pans. Flour a knife and cut a cross into the tops of each.
  4. Bake at 350 for about an hour. The top should not be allowed to get to brown.
