In the Kitchen: Irish Soda Bread

(WTNH) — Cooking instructors Betty Ann Donegan and Stephanie Dietz demonstrate how to make Irish soda bread.

Recipe: Irish Soda Bread

  • 4 cups flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup margarine or butter
  • 1 cup of raisins (light or dark)
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg, beaten

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In a large glass measuring cup, whisk together the buttermilk and egg.

Cut the margarine into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender. Add raisins and caraway seeds and then milk mixture. Knead dough on a floured board for about one minute. Shape into two round loaves and flatten slightly. Make a few slashes in the tops of the loaves with a sharp knife. Place on a greased and floured baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes. Serve warm.
