Irish Soda Bread

(4 Votes)
1 Hr 10 Min

When you were growing up, did you hear a rumor about leprechauns finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Maybe it wasn't gold after all, but Irish soda bread...well, it's as good as gold (as breads go, anyway)!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted, plus 1 tablespoon for brushing top of bread
  • 2/3 cup raisins
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the 1 tablespoon butter; mix just until moistened.
  3. Place in a greased 9-inch round baking pan and bake 1 hour, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. After removing from oven, brush top with remaining melted butter.
  • This is best served right from the oven, but you can rewarm it in a 200 degree F. oven 10 minutes before serving, and, yes, I suggest brushing the top with a bit more butter at that time.
  • If you enjoyed this Irish recipe, be sure to try this dinner recipe for Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage.

Triangle Hat Cookies

We know a very sweet Jewish grandma who loved to serve up Hamantashen to her grandchildren for Purim, except, here's the thing...the kids liked to call 'em "Triangle Hat Cookies," 'cause that's what they look like! Whatever you call 'em, make sure you bake up a batch of these filled cookie treats!
