preheat the oven at 375 degrees F. Spray a 8 inch cake pan with nonstick spray.

In a medium bowl, wisk all the dry ingredients together(except 1 tablespoon sugar). Add the butter and mix with fingers until you have a coarse texture. Make a well in the center of flour. Add the buttermilk and gradually stir the dry ingredients into the buttermilk until blended. Mix in the raisins.

I got this recipe from a newspaper insert and gave it a try. It is a very heavy type bread, but was quick and easy.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet. Combine all-purpose flour, sugar, soda and salt; mix well. Cut in butter with two knives or a pastry cutter. Stir in whole-wheat flour and oats. Make a well in the center and pour in buttermilk all at once. Mix with a fork until well blended.

Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead one minute. Shape into a ball and set on baking sheet. Press into a 6-inch circle and cut a cross in the top. Bake 40 minutes or until well browned and loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Buttermilk substitute:

For 1 1/2 cups, I used 1 tablespoon and 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice into the measuring cup then added enough milk to make the 1 1/2 cups required for the recipe. Let stand five minutes before using.

Recipe for Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Sift together the flour, sugar,
    salt, and baking soda into a large mixing bowl.

  2. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, work butter into
    flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal, then stir
    in raisins.

  3. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add
    beaten egg and buttermilk to well and mix in with a
    wooden spoon until dough is too stiff to stir. Dust hands
    with a little flour, then gently knead dough in the bowl
    just long enough to form a rough ball. If the dough is too
    sticky to work with, sprinkle in a little more flour. Do
    not overknead. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface
    and shape into a round loaf.

  4. Transfer dough to a large, lightly greased cast-iron
    skillet or a baking sheet. Using a serrated knife, score
    top of dough about 1/2'' deep in an "X" shape. Transfer
    to oven and bake until bread is golden and bottom sounds
    hollow when tapped with a knife, about 35-45 minutes.
    Check for doneness also by inserting a long, thin skewer
    into the center. If it comes out clean, it's done.

Hint 1: If the top is getting too dark while baking, tent the
bread with some aluminum foil.

Hint 2: If you use a cast iron skillet to cook the bread in
the oven, be very careful when you take the pan out. It's
easy to forget that the handle is extremely hot. Cool the
handle with an ice cube, or put a pot holder over it.

Transfer bread to a rack to let cool briefly. Serve bread
warm, at room temperature, or sliced and toasted. (11/20/2007)
