Irish Soda Bread Recipe

This is a traditional Irish recipe that was graciously given to me by my friend, Rita Bianchetto.


Pre-heat oven to 350°

3 ½ cups sifted Flour
½ cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
½ teaspoon Baking Soda
1 cup Golden Raisins (Golden raisins are plumper but regular can be used)
2 teaspoons Caraway Seeds
2 Eggs beaten with fork
16 ounces Sour Cream


Mix all dry ingredients well with a fork

>Add beaten eggs – mix thoroughly

>Add Sour Cream – mix thoroughly till blended

>Knead all together

>Use margarine or PAM and grease bottom of loaf pan>NOTE: use margarine because butter burns easily.

>Lightly flour bottom of loaf

>Fold into loaf pan and press into sides

>Bake 1 hour

NOTE: Add 5 to 10 minutes to cooking time if using glass loaf pans.
After 1 hour test center with toothpick

Thank you again Rita, for sharing this delicous recipe.

Have a nice day.
