Now, on to this this special recipe.

Regina has been making her Irish Soda Bread for many years, she happens to be a Pampered Chef Representative and now she uses some of the baking dishes to make this which she told me makes the bread come out crispy on the outside like it should be.

 I love how easy-peasy this recipe is and how pretty the soda bread is when finished baking. The taste is beyond delicious.

My whole family loves this bread and I told them I will make it year round for them and not just on St. Patrick’s Day.

So, with all this said, check out the simple recipe, have fun baking with the kids and enjoy every bite!   

Just a note, I will post some more St. Patrick’s Day recipe below this recipe so you’ll have if you plan on making a whole meal to go with this yummy bread. Also, I’ll add a few sweet treats for snacks.  

Irish Soda Bread

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all purpose flour, sifted (this is important to sift)
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp fine sea or kosher salt
  • 1 cup currants, you can use raisins too
  • 1 1/3 cups buttermilk

 

Optional Glaze:

  1. Mix 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsp hot water
  2. Brush all on hot loaf
  3. Bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until richly golden

 

 

 

 

Perfection!

Directions:

  1. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium to large mixing bowl.
  2. Stir in currents, then buttermilk until blended.  Dough will be sticky.
  3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured pastry cloth or board and knead for about 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Shape into an 8” round and place onto an uncreased pan. Then, cut a cross in the top of the dough with a sharp knife.Regina placed it on a Large White Round Stone. (I happen to love this round stone, great for pizza too) For a smaller size she split the dough into two and placed on the Pampered Chef Large Bar Pan. For both, she baked on parchment paper only because the stones were not fully seasoned yet.
  5. Bake in a moderate oven of 375 degrees for  45 minutes for the 8” and 35 to 40 minutes for the half size.
  6. Remove from over and cool on wire rack. 

Enjoy the deliciousness
