Irish Soda Bread

Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • In large bowl whisk together your flour, baking soda and salt. Add in your buttermilk and stir until it just comes together. Add raisins and mix a little more.
  • Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead until it forms a smooth ball. Dust the outside with flour and place on an un-greased baking sheet. Use a sharp knife to slash a 1 inch deep cross on top of the loaf. 
  • Bake in oven for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
