Ingredients
  1. 2 cups all purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon salt
  3. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 1 cup buttermilk*
  5. 3/4 cup raisins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425° F and line a baking sheet with sol-pad or parchment paper
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda and stir together.
  3. Add buttermilk and mix with a wooden spoon until the dough comes together.
  4. Stir in raisins. The dough will be quite sticky.
  5. Divide dough into 6 even pieces and place onto prepared baking sheet.
  6. Smooth tops with very lightly floured fingers, then slash an X into the top of each with a knife.
  7. Bake for about 12 minutes, until golden brown.
  8. Cool on a wire rack for about 5 minutes before serving.
Notes
  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. *To make a simple buttermilk substitute, add one tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to one cup of milk.
