Irish Soda Bread

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Kristyn! How’s my neighbor back in Jersey?   I remember our first St. Pat’s Day when you made Irish soda bread and gave me one. It was still hot from the oven and smelled like heaven! It didn’t last 2 days in my house! Here’s the recipe:

Nana Anna Courtney Ginty’s Irish Soda Bread

  • 4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 stick softened margarine
  • 7 1/2 oz seedless raisins
  • 2 cup milk (soy works for vegans)

Preheat over to 350 deg. Mix all dry ingredients. Add margarine; gently work into flour mixture. Add raisins, combine. Add 1 cup of milk at a time. Mix thoroughly. Put dough in greased and floured 9 in baking pan. Mark with an ‘x’ on top and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 1 hour: 1/2 hour bottom rack, 1/2 hour top rack.  Let cool slightly. Slainte! (health)
