Favorite Ingredient Friday- St. Patty's Day Edition
Since my husband's family is Irish and into Celtic music, Irish Step Dancing and Irish food, I figured I would post a recipe of something I enjoy snacking on whenever we go to the local Irish Club to hear some of our favorite Irish musicians. Some people say that Irish Soda Bread can be very dry, but I love it especially when I put a nice glob of butter on it and enjoy it with a nice cup of coffee!
IRISH SODA BREAD
1. 3 cups all-purpose flour
2. 1 tablespoon baking powder
3. 1/3 cup white sugar
4. 1 teaspoon salt
5. 1 teaspoon baking soda
6. 1 egg, lightly beaten
7. 2 cups buttermilk
8. 1/4 cup butter, melted
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda. Blend egg and buttermilk together, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened. Stir in butter. Pour into prepared pan.
3. Bake for 65 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Wrap in foil for several hours, or overnight, for best flavor.
