Grandma's Irish Soda Bread

My son, Jimmy, had to do a presentation in Geography on a country. He chose Ireland, of course. He has Irish on his dad's side. He had to bring in a dish from that country for extra credit. So, he asked me to make Irish Soda Bread (at least he changed his mind from corned beef hash).

I found an easy recipe in Gooseberry Patch Farmhouse Kitchen book. It came out delicious! The container came out empty!

Grandma's Irish Soda Bread


3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 c. sugar
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 1/2 c. raisins
2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cup buttermilk
1 T butter, melted and slightly cooled


Stir dry ingredients together in a large bowl; stir in raisins and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk and melted butter, blending well. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir until well mixed. Pour batter into two greased 9x5 loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. Turn loaves out of pans and let cool on a wire rack. Makes 2 loaves.

Hi, this is my Grandmother's recipe. I was the one who submitted it to Goosberry Patch. I'm so glad you and your son's class enjoyed the recipe!
