Irish Soda Bread

It's late. But other than green milk the leprechans are sure to leave tomorrow I want to do something to get a "taste of St Patty's Day." Here's the recipe I'm going to make:

Update 3/23: I've just made this for the second time in a week. It's wonderful! The cook time is at least 10 min longer than stated. I use currants instead of raisins and about half the caraway seeds be/c I like them...sort of.


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 cups raisins
  • 2 tablespoons caraway seeds, optional


In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the egg, milk and butter. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in raisins and caraway seeds if desired.

Transfer to a 9-in. square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 12 servings.
