Irish Soda Bread

A favorite among the Irish as a compliment to a splendid St. Patrick's Day meal.  But we love it anytime, even for breakfast with coffee or tea!

IRISH SODA BREAD
    by Dolce Vita Baskets

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

3 tablespoons brown sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons butter

2 beaten eggs, used separately

¾ cup of buttermilk

½ cup of raisins

Combine 1 egg, raisins and buttermilk and let sit for a few minutes.  In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar and ¼ teaspoon of salt.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture.  Stir just until moistened.  On a floured surface, knead gently for 12 strokes.  On a greased baking sheet shape dough into a 6-inch loaf.  Cut a 4 inch cross ¼ inch deep on the top.  Brush with 1 beaten egg.

Bake in a 375° oven about 35 minutes or until golden.  Cool on rack.  Wrap in wax paper and serve the next day!
