Baker Pippi’s Easy Irish Soda Bread



Baker Pippi made one early, so everyone can make it for St. Patrick’s Day. Tomorrow we will share the other recipes for St. Patrick’s Day so everyone has time to get there ingredients…

4 cups all purpose flour

5 tablespoons white sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 cup buttermilk

1 egg

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 cup buttermilk

1 cup raisins or currants

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a large baking sheet. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and butter. Stir in one cup of buttermilk, egg and raisins. Mix gently by hand.  Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead gently. In a small bowl, combine melted butter and 1/4 cup buttermilk. Use a knife to cut an X into the top of the loaf and brush loaf with the buttermilk and butter mixture.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of loaf comes out clean.

Enjoy! Baker Pippi.
