I'm not Irish

It's not my holiday.

But I do make a mean Irish soda bread.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

And just in case you want to try your hand at this really simple recipe:

2 c. flour
2 tbs brown sugar
1 tsp bkg powder
1/2 tsp bkg soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbs butter/margarine
2 eggs
3/4 c. buttermilk
1/3 c. raisins

Combine dry ingredients.

Cut in butter until crumbly.

Combine 1 egg and buttermilk; stir into flour mixture just until moist.

Fold in raisins.

Knead on floured surface for one minute.

Shape into a round loaf; place on greased baking sheet.

Cut a 1/4" deep cross in top of loaf.

Beat the remaining egg, brush over loaf.

Bake at 375 for 30-35 min. or until golden brown.

  3. I was planning on making Irish soda bread with Little Bear. But then I got lazy and didn't. We made leprechaun fizzies instead. (Floats with lime sherbert and Sprite!)
