Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread (Recipe from my mother-in-law who was given it from her friend's mother who was straight from Ireland!)
4 cups white flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 lb butter
1 cup raisins
1 1/3 cup buttermilk
1 egg

Sift together first five ingredients. Cut in butter until well blended. Add raisins and mix until well coated. Add buttermilk and egg. Mix until well blended (I use the paddle attachment on my Kitchen Aid). Place in ungreased round cake pan. Use your hands to shape it. Cut a cross in the top (about half way down).

Bake in a 375 degree oven for one hour.

  4. Greetings from Wordwise Hymns. I see that you list Charles Wesley's hymn, "And Can It Be?" as your favourite. It's certainly a great song--and I especially like stanza 4, "Long my imprisoned spirit lay..." Stunning. I posted a blog on the hymn this morning, and I invite you to check it out. God bless.
