Best Irish Soda Bread Ever

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

This is my mom’s Irish soda bread recipe. It is SO easy and SO good, and you don’t have to be Irish to eat it. Enjoy!

4 c flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 T carraway seeds (optional, but I love them)
3/4 c sugar
1 c dried currants (or raisins, but I prefer currants)
2 T butter, melted
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 c buttermilk

1. Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl
2. Add the carraway seeds, sugar, and currants
3. Stir in the butter, eggs, and buttermilk

Plop it on a greased pan (I used a round cake pan; the bread will also be round). Attempt to cut a 1.5-inch-deep cross-cut using a serrated knife. Don’t worry if the dough sticks to the knife and your cross-cut is barely visible.

Cook 45-60 mins at 350 degrees (Mine took 50 mins). Take it out, let it sit 5-10 mins in the pan, then remove it to cool on a rack. Eat while warm with butter. Wash down with Irish whiskey or Guinness—or better yet, a cup of tea.
