Warm soda bread on a cold day!
Posted on November 01 2018
It's cold out, you're not sick but you don't feel like going to work/school, you still haven't won the lotto... what's a poor girl to do?!
A slice of warm Irish Soda bread is just the ticket to lift your spirits and put a shine on the day!
Here's the recipe:
3 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons caraway seeds (optional)
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
1 pint sour cream (or plain yogurt)
1 cup raisins, soaked in warm water until softened and drained (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl place the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and caraway seeds. Mix the ingredients together well. Add the eggs and sour cream, and fold them in so that they are just combined (do not over mix). Add the raisins and gently fold them in.
Place the dough in a greased and floured 8" round cake pan. Even out the top of the batter with a floured spatula. With a knife, cut an 'X' across the dough.
Bake the bread for 1 hour, or until it is lightly browned on top.
Immediately remove the bread from the pan and wrap it in a dampened cloth. Place the bread on a wire rack and let it cool.
Makes 1 loaf
