Hello all,

I ran across this recipe today . I've been looking for a recipe for Irish soda bread.  This one sounds delicious and look so easy. Since I am Irish I thought I would give it a try! Enjoy!

Irish Soda Fruit Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup raisins or currants
3/4 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a small baking sheet.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in raisins and buttermilk until the dough is evenly moistened.
Turn dough out onto a lightly-floured surface and knead gently until smooth. Shape into a 6-inch ball, place on a cookie sheet. With a sharp knife, cut a 1/4-inch deep cross on top of the dough.
Bake 30-40 minutes, or until dough is just cooked through and the top is a light golden brown.
