PostHeaderIcon Breads: Irish Soda Bread with Raisins

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour (+ 2 tablespoons for the board)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter (chilled & diced)
  • 3 tablespoons rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup raisins
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, soda & salt.  Cut in the butter and mix well.  Continue to mix, adding the raisins, oats and milk until you have a soft moist dough.

Transfer to a well-floured surface.  Knead dough into about a 7-8" round that is about 1" thick.

Place the round on the baking sheet and slice a cross into the top -- about 1/4" deep.

Bake for 45-50 minutes until nicely browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
