      Irish Soda Bread

      I posted this recipe and thought I'd post it again. I also found a recipe for Irish Tea Soda Bread that I made yesterday and it was fabulous. I bake my soda breads in a iron skillet.

      Irish Soda Bread

      Ingredients (measure precisely for baking bread)
      3 cups white all-purpose flour
      1 cups whole wheat flour
      4 tablespoons white sugar
      1 teaspoon baking soda
      1 tablespoon baking powder
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1/2 cup margarine, softened

      1 cup buttermilk
      1 egg

      1/4 cup butter, melted
      1/4 cup buttermilk

      1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
      2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt
      4. Cut in C margarine.
      3. Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk and egg. Stir until the milk and egg are mixed. Just barely mix the ingredients.
      4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead very slightly. Do not overwork the dough.
      5. Form dough into a round and place on prepared baking sheet. Use a sharp knife to cut an 'X' into the top of the loaf.
      6. In a small bowl, combine melted butter with 1/4 cup buttermilk; brush loaf with this mixture.
      7. Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean

      Irish Tea Soda Bread

      The Zest and juice of 1 Lemon
      1 cup of milk
      1 1/2 cup brewed Irish tea
      3 cups all purpose flour
      1 teaspoon baking soda
      1 teaspoon salt
      1 tablespoon sugar
      1/4 cup raisins

      Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
      To the milk add the zest and juice of lemon, sugar and brewed tea. Set this aside.
      Combine the flour soda and salt.
      By hand mix the liquid ingredients to the dry until a soft but not sticky dough forms adding more flour or milk as needed.
      Add 1/4 cup of raisins.
      Pat the dough into a round and cut a cross on it to let the fairies escape.
      Bake about 30 minutes or until nicely browned and when tapped sounds hollow.
