IRISH SODA BREAD
3 C. all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/3 C. white sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 C. buttermilk
1/4 C. butter or margarine, melted
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. (I use a pie plate)
2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda. Blend egg and buttermilk, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened. Stir in butter and incorporate well. Pour into prepared pan.
3. Bake for 65 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean. Cool.
Give it a try this this St.Patrick's Day along with a big pot of Irish Stew and you'll be set. Pass the butter please!
Till next time...
