Welcome to my new Blog and enjoy my Irish Soda Bread

Some of you may remember me, some of you don't know me, but I am formerly of http://http// I blogged for awhile and then, honestly, life just got in the way. Instead of going back to that blog I have started a fresh, new one. It is still a work in progress but I am going to do my best to keep up with this one.

My first post up is my Irish Soda Bread. I figured about this time some of you may be searching for a foolproof and delish recipe for it, with St Patty's day fast approaching. This a a combo of many different recipes, so now it is my It is so good warm with butter or just plain .

Irish Soda Bread:

Preheat oven to 350.


3 1/2 cups flour

4 tsp baking powder

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 tsp baking soda

8 oz rasins, soak in hot water and drain

1/2 tsp salt


2 eggs,beaten

1 cup sour cream

1/2 cup buttermilk

3 tbsps melted margarine

COMBINE wet and dry ingredients, knead together

Add to greased,floured 9 inch pan. Cut an "X" in the top.

Bake 55-60 minutes at 350.


The top is nice and crunchy.

The inside is very moist!!!

Just yummy and will definately fit in with your corned beef and cabbage.

Hope you will follow along on my new journey to see what we will be eating when we are gathered around the table.
