Grandpa McAndrew's Irish Soda Bread

"My mom bugged grandpa for this recipe but he told her he didn't have one.

So, when he made the bread one day she captured each ingredient in a bowl and measured it and put it in the bowl he planned to mix it in!" Serve warm or cold with butter. This freezes great. I've made several loaves before St. Patrick's Day, or family parties. I freeze them, take them out the morning they're needed and warm up in a hot oven for 5 -7 minutes before serving."

It is an ideal option for a wonderful dessert, as the cooking method is very easy and convenient for everyone. It is one of the best options for any table. Grandma McAndrews' Irish Soda Bread is one of the most delicious and useful dishes that can be prepared at home.

Method for Grandpa McAndrew's Irish Soda Bread

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a cast iron skillet.

    In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and sugar. Toss the raisins with the flour mixture until coated. Make a well in the center and add the egg, buttermilk, and melted margarine. Stir until all of the dry ingredients are absorbed. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for a few quick turns just to even out the dough. Handle the dough as little as possible. Pat into a flat circle, and place into the prepared pan.
