I make this Irish soda bread every year for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a quick and tasty recipe; a great addition to any Irish feast you may be preparing tomorrow! I’ll personally be eating Colcannon in addition to this bread and I can not wait! So delicious!
Here is the recipe! It’s best if made the day before eating! Enjoy!
*added note - many recipes call to add raisins. You can certainly add them here also, about a half cup would do.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
Combine dry ingredients. Blend egg and buttermilk together and add to flour mixture. Mix until just moistened. * Stir in melted butter and then pour into prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 65-70 minutes or until toothpick inserted into bread comes out clean Cool on a wire rack. Wrap in foil, overnight, for the best flavor!
P.S. And just because they are so darn addictive and I HAD to make another batch... more cupcake bites!
