Happy St. Patrick’s Day

March 17, 2021

I made Irish Soda Bread for the holiday – I don’t know why I don’t make it more often.

It is difficult to imagine just from the photo how delicious this bread really is.

Here is the recipe:

4 cups of all-purpose flour

1/3 cup brown sugar packed

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp salt

Mix all these ingredients together

Add 6 Tbsp cold, unsalted butter diced

Rub the butter into the flour mixture with your fingertips or a pastry blender

Make a well in the center and add 1 3/4 cups buttermilk (reserve 1/4 cup)

Add raisins or currants (as many as you desire) and 1-2 Tbsp caraway seeds (if you desire)

Stir together with your hands or a wooden spoon. Add the remaining buttermilk if the mixture is too dry.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a couple of time to bring it all together.

Line the bottom of a seasoned cast iron skittle with with parchment paper.

Shape the bread into a large, round loaf in the skillet

Using a sharp knife or scissors make an X on the top of the loaf

Bake 40 – 45 minutes in a 400 degree oven until the middle of the loaf registers 200 degrees

Allow to cool before cutting
