Traditional Irish Soda Bread Recipe-

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min

Cook time: 40 min

Ready in: 55 min

Yields: Makes one loaf

Ingredients-

  • Atleast 4.5 cups of Flour
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking soda
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 large egg beaten up
  • 1 3/4 butter milk

Steps-

  1. Preheat oven to 425. Whisk together 4 cups of flour, the sugar, salt, and baking soda into a large mixing bowl.


  2. Using your (clean) fingers (or two knives or a pastry cutter), work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal, then add in the raisins.


  3. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add beaten egg and buttermilk to well and mix in with a wooden spoon until dough is too stiff to stir.
  4. Dust hands with a little flour, then gently knead dough in the bowl just long enough to form a rough ball. If the dough is too sticky to work with, add in a little more flour. Do not over-knead! Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and shape into a round loaf.
  5. Dust hands with a little flour, then gently knead dough in the bowl just long enough to form a rough ball. If the dough is too sticky to work with, add in a little more flour. Do not over-knead! Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and shape into a round loaf.
  6. Preheat oven to 425. Whisk together 4 cups of flour, the sugar, salt, and baking soda into a large mixing bowl.
  7. Using your (clean) fingers (or two knives or a pastry cutter), work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal, then add in the raisins.

  9. Dust hands with a little flour, then gently knead dough in the bowl just long enough to form a rough ball. If the dough is too sticky to work with, add in a little more flour. Do not over-knead! Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and shape into a round loaf.
  10. Note that the dough will be a little sticky, and quite shaggy (a little like a shortcake biscuit dough). You want to work it just enough so that the flour is just moistened and the dough just barely comes together. Shaggy is good. If you over-knead, the bread will end up tough.


HINTS-

  • If the top is getting too dark while baking, tent the bread with some aluminum foil.
  • If you use a cast iron skillet to cook the bread in the oven, be very careful when you take the pan out. It's easy to forget that the handle is extremely hot. Cool the handle with an ice cube, or put a pot holder over it.

      Sugar free are small white capsules which don't contain any sugar but still gives sugar's taste. It is specially used by Diabetes patients. Thx for the comment.

      Thanks Gagan, for this recipe. Will be trying it soon. Will 3 tablespoons of sugar free powder in the apple pie filling not make it too sweet?

      The apple pie looks awesome, though.

      Voted up and rated 5 stars.

      I'm with Ms. Dora -- the whole pie sounds good but as I'm very inept with making pie dough I'm going to try this one -- thanks so much. Best/Sis

      This was definitely very interesting. I would love to know more about the cake part of the pie and what sugar free is. I've never heard of it.

      The pie in the pictures looks wonderful. I'm going to have to try it out.
