This is a traditional St. Patrick’s day bread recipe. It’s called soda bread because baking soda is a key ingredient and it gives the break a tart flavor. The white bread setting is used on the bread machine but you can also finish this bread in the oven after using the dough cycle if you want the traditional, round loaf shape of a classic soda bread.

It’s ideal with corned beef and cabbage but is also a good bread to serve with fish or pork.

INGREDIENTS:
 0.75 cup buttermilk
 1 egg
 3 tbsp butter or margarine, softened
 2 tbsp sugar
 1 tsp baking soda
 1 tsp baking powder
 0.50 tsp salt
 1/3 cup raisins (optional)
 2 cups all-purpose flour
DIRECTIONS:
1

Place all ingredients in the bread pan in the order indicated and select the dough cycle.

2

When the dough cycle is complete preheat the oven to 375° F./190° C. Place the dough on an oiled baking sheet and let rise for another 30 minutes.

3

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes and serve.
