You will love this quick and easy Irish Soda Bread with Raisins recipe made with flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, egg, butter, buttermilk, and raisins for St. Patrick’s Day or any time of year!
St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. (As if you couldn’t tell from all the St. Patrick’s Day recipes that I have been posting!)
Even though my family is mostly italian, we are a bit Irish as well. Each year we have the tradition of my mother cooking a big Irish dinner of corned beef and cabbage. I look forward to this dinner and spending time with my family every year.
But to be completely honest, my favorite part of the meal for me has always been the Irish soda bread. Irish soda bread that is made with raisins, of course!
I love to enjoy my irish soda bread just out of the oven. When the bread is nice and warm the butter melts and it is just heavenly! The bread is excellent toasted with butter as well, which is perfect for breakfast the next morning.
While we made our irish soda bread with raisins on a baking sheet, you could use a cast iron skillet instead. Your soda bread may need a few extra minutes to make in the cast iron skillet, but it will come out wonderful as well.
If you are a fan of irish soda bread with raisins and caraway seeds, those can easily be added to the recipe too. Enjoy!
