If you’re planning to make Irish Soda Bread for St. Patrick’s Day, this is a great recipe to try.¬† You can make 1 large loaf or cut in half to make 2 smaller loaves which would be great for serving at multiple meals.

Ingredients:

4 cups all purpose flour

Directions:

1. Sift together dry ingredients. Cut in the butter until mixture resembles course crumbs.

3. Stir flour mixture until a soft dough forms. Add raisins. Turn out dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly.
4. Shape into one large round loaf or divide dough in half and shape into two round loaves.
