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.
