Tasty Tuesday


           As promised, this week's post is dedicated to the famous Irish soda bread which is easy to make and truly brings the history of St. Patrick's Day to your table! A staple back in the day, this bread deserves to be baked at least once a year!

Irish Soda Bread

3 Tb. butter,softened
2 1/2 c. all purpose flour
2 Tb. sugar
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/3 c. raisins
3/4 c. buttermilk
Preheat oven to 375 and grease cookie sheet, set aside. Cut butter into flour, sugar, baking soda and powder and salt in large bowl, using2 knives or a pastry blender, till mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in raisins ( caraway seeds too if using them) and enough buttermilk so dough leaves sides of bowl. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for 1-2 min. Shape into a round loaf and place on cookie sheet. With a floured knife, make a X on top and brush with butter. Bake for 35-45 min. Serve warm.

Hi Sue, The hutch looks really cute! Your right life is to short so why don't we make time for the fun stuff? I love to make soda bread with a pot of soup, but I have never put raisins in it before. It has been crazy weather here, but we need snow really bad!
Have a great weekend!
Blessings, Roxy
