Irish Soda Bread

With St Patricks Day right around the corner, I'm baking up some Soda Bread. My soda bread has caraway seed in it , which is traditional. I have made so much soda bread in my life, I think I could do it in my sleep sometimes. I serve mine warm with Orange Marmalade, which is so awesome!


3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 Tbl. of caraway seeds
**Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan, or a cast iron round pan.
**Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, seeds, 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.
**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.

I've never even eaten soda bread let alone made it. Safe to conclude that I'm not all.

Sounds good though with orange marm.
