Irish Soda Bread

This is my absolutely favorite recipe for Irish Soda Bread. It is very light and moist. Very cake-like. I got it originally from As you can see, I leave the raisins and the caraway seeds out because I don't like raisins, and my husband doesn't like raisins nor caraway seeds. It may not be "authentic", but it is delicious!

1/2 cup sugar
4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
3 cups raisins
1 Tbsp. caraway seeds

2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 cup sour cream

1 Tbsp. flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9" round pan.

In a large mixing bowl, combine 4 cups flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, raisins, and caraway seeds.

In a small bowl, combine eggs, buttermilk, and sour cream. Beat until smooth.

Stir the liquid mixture into flour mixture just until flour is moistened. Knead dough in bowl about 10-12 times. This may seem almost impossible, as the dough will be very sticky.

Place the dough in the prepared pan and pat down. Cut a 4" x 3/4" deep slash in the top of the bread and dust with the 1 Tbsp. flour.

Bake at 350 degrees for 65 to 75 minutes. Remove from pan and place on wire rack to cool.
