irishsodabreadCan you feel spring peeking its head around the corner? I sure can, and I think we can all agree that we are looking forward to warmer weather! One of my favorite almost-Spring milestones is of course, St. Patrick’s Day, when everyone becomes Irish for the day. What comes to mind for me are the many wonderful, traditional foods (and drinks) we indulge in, so I thought I would share my personal favorite Irish Soda Bread recipe. Nothing like enjoying it a few days old, sliced and toasted with butter. Slainte!


Irish Soda Bread with Raisins

Yields 1 Loaf


  • Nonstick pan spray
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 5 tbsp sugar divided
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons butter , chilled and cut into cubes
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup raisins


To Prepare:

Preheat oven to 375F. Spray 8 inch diameter pan with pan spray.


Whisk flour, 4 tablespoons of sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl to blend. Add butter, then using finger tips, rub in until coarse meal forms. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add buttermilk. Gradually stir dry ingredients into milk to blend. Mix in raisins.


Using floured hands, shape dough into a ball. Transfer to the sprayed pan and flatten slightly (dough will not come to the edges of the pan). Sprinkle dough with the remaining sugar.


Bake bread until brown, about 40 minutes. Insert a tester into the center until it comes out clean and free of dough. Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes, then serve warm or at room temperature.
