|Dorothy's Irish Soda Bread|
|A great St. Patrick's Day recipe idea! Dorothy Stack of Cape Elizabeth, Maine, got this recipe from her mother-in-law when she married. Since then, she’s made the bread many times and always receives compliments.|
|4 cups all-purpose flour,
1/2 cup sugar,
2 teaspoons baking powder,
1 teaspoon baking soda,
1 cup sour cream,
1 cup milk,
1 large egg- lightly beaten,
1 cup golden raisins,
1-2 tablespoons caraway seeds,
2 teaspoons butter;cut into small pieces|
|1. Preheat the oven to 350F. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda.|
2. In a large bowl, beat together the sour cream, milk and egg with an electric mixer at medium speed. At low speed, beat in the flour mixture until a soft dough forms. Stir in the raisins and caraway seeds until just combined.
3. Scrape the bread dough into an ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Using the tip of a knife, cut a shallow X in the top of the dough. Place a piece of the butter in each point.
4. Bake bread for 50 minutes or until golden. Transfer the pan to a wire rack to cool slightly. Remove bread from the pan and serve warm.
