Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Irish Soda Bread

This is literally the BEST bread ever! My mom use to make it every year for holidays and weekends, but I had not had it for a couple years. When I was home last, I remembered the famous bread and asked her to make it for me. Not only did she make a loaf for the family, but she made another loaf for me to take back to college. Needless to say I brought one back to my sorority house and everyone loved it!!!

Here the recipe for the most amazing bread ever!


4 cups flour

1 cup raisins

1/2 sugar

a pinch of salt

a teaspoon of baking soda

16 oz. lowfat buttermilk

Mix all ingredients together and bake on a pan in the oven for 375 F for 30-35 minutes.

Although this might not be the healthiest recipe, it is okay to have in moderation. As you can see from above, I usually only eat it once or twice a year.
