Irish Soda Bread Recipe

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Egg-free Irish Soda Bread

Because two people in my family are allergic to eggs, I've had to look for baking recipes without eggs.   I keep this scone-like bread in a plastic bag after it cools so it will stay moist.

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
1 tbsp caraway seeds
1 cup raisins
2 cups buttermilk

Chop up butter with flour, sugar, salt and soda in food processor.  Pour mixture into a bowl and add caraway seeds, raisins, and buttermilk.  Should be a very soft, almost runny dough.  Pour out onto a greased baking sheet and with floured hands shape into a circle.  With a knife cut a cross on the top.  Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or just until a toothpick comes out clean.  Let cool, slice, and serve!
