Tuesdays At The Table - Irish Soda Bread

Happy Tuesday, ladies!  Monday was my first day back at work, post -surgery.  Um. I'll just say it was an experience

Alrighty, on to happier things!  St. Patrick's Day is coming soon - and to me, that means a parade, wearing green and eating a little soda bread.

Lovely Yellow Ribbons

Irish Soda Bread

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
2 cups (16 ounces) sour cream
3/4 cup raisins

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In a small bowl, the whisk eggs and sour cream. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in raisins.

Spoon mixture into a greased 9-in. cake pan (though the original recipe calls for a springform pan). Bake at 350° for 40-45 or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before from the pan. Cut into wedges; serve warm.

  20. Hi Cole- I'm glad you are feeling better!
