Irish Soda Bread

I always make Irish Soda Bread to accompany our Saint Patrick’s Day Dinner.   This year I tried a new recipe and it was over the top moist and delicious.   In fact, the only picture I have of it is the finished product from the oven.   When I asked my son to slice it and place on the table, it disappeared in minutes!!!    Anyway, here is a recipe for the best Irish Soda Bread ever!

This is a moister batter/dough than most Irish Soda Bread recipes, so you will bake it in a loaf pan rather than a round mound.

    * 3 cups all-purpose flour
    * 1 tablespoon baking powder
    * 1/3 cup white sugar   (I used slightly less)
    * 1 teaspoon salt
    * 1 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1 egg, lightly beaten
    * 2 cups buttermilk
    * 1/4 cup butter, melted


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Blend egg, butter and buttermilk together in a separate bowl and then, add all at once to the flour mixture.   Mix just until moistened and then pour into prepared pan.

Bake for 65 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.   Serve warm or wrap in foil for several hours, or overnight.
