The Best Irish Soda Bread Recipe!

I've never been much of a fan of Irish Soda Bread, I always felt it was much too dry. A few years ago, I made this recipe with a friend and I was floored! This Irish Soda Bread is awesome! It is very moist and it tastes amazing! I made this yesterday for my St. Patrick's Day play date and it was a hit. You have to try it out for yourself!

Look at the top of the loaf!
It looks (and tastes) amazing with the sugar sprinkled on top.

Irish Soda Bread


4 Cups Flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Sugar
4 Tablespoons of butter, softened
2 Cups of Buttermilk
1 Egg, beaten
1 Cup Raisins
1-2 Tablespoons Sugar, to top if desired

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add butter. If you have a Kitchen Aid mixer, mix it using the bread/dough hook, if not, knead it with your hands for a few minutes until combined. Add the egg and buttermilk and knead again until combined. Mix in the raisins. Place in a greased loaf/bread pan and sprinkle the top with sugar if desired. Bake at 325 degrees for about 80 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Serve warm or at room temperature with or without butter. Enjoy!
