Nana’s Irish Soda Bread

This is my favorite Irish soda bread. My mother-in-law makes this every St. Patrick’s day and it was passed down to her from her mother, who lived in Wexford, Ireland. I like it much more than the sweet white bread version.

Size: one loaf

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup white four
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. caraway seeds
1/2 lb. raisins
2 eggs, beaten
1 plus, cup buttermilk
1/2 cup sugar for sprinkling on top


Heat over to 375 degrees. Mix dry ingredients. Add eggs and milk. Fill greased 9 inch pan with dough. Press dough with back of your hand into pan. Make a deep cross with a knife across the top. Dot top with 1 pat of butter on each quarter. Bake approx. 1 hour.

Enjoy and Happy St. Patrick’s day!
