Irish Soda Bread Recipe - Food Fun Friday
- 4 cups of flour
- ⅓ cup of sugar + ½ tablespoon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup softened butter
- 1 cup of butter milk
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup of melted butter for brushing on top
- ½ cup of raisins
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease baking sheet.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, ⅓ cup of sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and softened butter. Mix in the buttermilk and egg until dough starts to form, then fold in raisins. If dough is still crumbly, add a splash of buttermilk until it comes together.
- Knead dough on a floured surface. Form into a round loaf.
- Brush the top of the loaf with ¼ cup of melted butter then sprinkle ½ tablespoon of sugar on top.
- Cut an X into the top of the loaf using a sharp knife.
- Bake for 1 hour. Test to see if it is done by inserting a toothpick into the center and checking to see that it comes out clean. If the loaf is too thick, the center might take longer to bake. Simply place some foil over the top of the loaf and continue baking until done.
EAT AT HOME MEAL PLANS
I am super excited to tell you about Eat At Home Meal Plans. If you are stressed trying to decide what to make for dinner each night or simply don't want to spend money to eat out, this might be just the thing for you. Sign up for the plans, and each month you will get access to 4 separate meal plans (Traditional, Wholesome Traditional, Slow Cooker, and No Flour/No Sugar). All you have to do is print the plans, color-coded grocery lists, and recipes you want for the month. There are so many options, even the picky eaters in your life will find something they like.
When it is time for dinner, just make that night’s recipe (choices include make-ahead, freezer meals, slow-cooker recipes, and other time-saving strategies) and relax.
I know you have more important things to do than meal planning. With Eat At Home Meal Plans someone else can do it for you. Monthly, quarterly and annual plans are available.
