- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup buttermilk*
- 3/4 cup raisins
- Preheat oven to 425° F and line a baking sheet with sol-pad or parchment paper
- In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda and stir together.
- Add buttermilk and mix with a wooden spoon until the dough comes together.
- Stir in raisins. The dough will be quite sticky.
- Divide dough into 6 even pieces and place onto prepared baking sheet.
- Smooth tops with very lightly floured fingers, then slash an X into the top of each with a knife.
- Bake for about 12 minutes, until golden brown.
- Cool on a wire rack for about 5 minutes before serving.
- As a middle school family and consumer science teacher, I always try to have simple recipes families can make and enjoy together with simple ingredients. This recipe can be completed, with cleanup, in less than forty-five minutes. For a loaf of soda bread, change the oven temperature to 375° and bake for approximately forty minutes.
- If you are feeling adventurous, drizzle a little honey on the bread right before you put it in the oven, add multicolored raisins, or mix caraway seeds into the dough (about 1 tablespoon). Happy St. Patrick's Day!
- *To make a simple buttermilk substitute, add one tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to one cup of milk.
