irish soda bread

Recently, I got a random craving for Irish Soda Bread, so I retrieved my favorite recipe from my mom & made it the next day. We have been enjoying it for breakfast ever since & I definitely plan on making ti more frequently instead of once a year for St. Patrick's Day. Also, I am addicted to grapefruit juice & have at least two glasses in the above glass (purchased at a thrift store) daily.

*all organic 

1 cup sugar
1 1/2 stick butter
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
5 cups flour
(2 cups raisins if desired, I prefer mine without)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cream the butter & sugar
Add eggs & mix until light & fluffy
Add remaining dry ingredients & mix until everything is incorporated
Add buttermilk & once again mix until all incorporated
Grease your baking medium (i.e. cake pan, angel food pan, or le creuset which I used) with butter
Spoon the batter into the baking medium
Cut a cross on the top of the batter with a knife & sprinkle the top of the batter lightly with sugar
Bake for 50 minutes
Remove from pan 15 minutes after removing from oven

Slice & serve with butter &/or jam - Enjoy!
