irish Soda Bread 2

I prefer soda bread with buttermilk, but this recipe takes it to the next step by adding some sour cream indulgence!

4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups raisins
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 and 1/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup sour cream

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease two 8" round cake pans
  3. Combine all dry ingredients and raisins in a large bowl.
  4. In another bowl, blend the remaining ingredients together and then add to the bowl of dry ingredients.
  5. Stir until combined and flour is moist.
  6. Knead in the bowl - the dough will be very sticky.
  7. Divide in half, shaping into 2 balls, and place in the center of pans.
  8. Flatten balls a bit and then cut a deep X across the top of each loaf.
  9. Bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  10. Cool completely on a wire rack.
