Ye Original Irish Soda Bread
Traditional Irish Soda Bread
About 6 hours before (or even overnight) soak 1 cup raisins (I actually combined golden and regular raisins and currants) in Irish whiskey to cover
Preheat oven 425F-degrees and line baking sheet with parchment
4 - 5 cups all purpose flour
3 T. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. coarse salt
In a food processor and using the metal blade, combine the dry ingredients. Next, add:
4 T. cold, unsalted butter, cut into pieces
Pulse into the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Transfer mixture to a large bowl.
2 cups Buttermilk
Whisk the egg into the buttermilk and then, add to the dry ingredients. The dough will be wet.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until golden brown and a tester comes out clean. Let cool on baking sheet before cutting. You can also do as my mother did...she baked the bread the night before and wrapped it in a kitchen towel so we could have it in the morning. Enjoy!
