Holiday Recipe: Catie Moloney’s Irish Soda Bread

This easy bread is great for breakfast or with soup! The caraway is optional. They taste a bit like licorice. I like them and my husband doesn’t, so I usually knead them into just one loaf after I cut them.


4Cups Flour 1/4Cup Sugar 1tbs. Baking Powder 1tps. Salt 1tsp. Baking Soda 1/3Cup Butte 2Cup Golden Raisins 1.5Cup Buttermilk 1 Egg 1tbs. Caraway seed


1. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Save the raisins for later.

2. Cut the butter into small pieces. Make sure it is cold! Use a pastry cutter to work it into the dry ingredients. It won’t incorporate completely. That’s okay.

3. Beat the egg in a separate bowl and add it and the buttermilk to the dry ingredients.

4. Add the raisins (and caraway)!

5. Knead the dough in the bowl until it holds together enough to lift out. Knead more on the counter.

6. Cut the dough in half and shape two circular loaves. Cut a deep cross in each loaf.

Bake at 375 for 40 – 60 minutes. Cut into it and make sure it’s done before you turn off the oven!
