Irish Soda Bread

2 c. flour

2 Tbls. sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3 Tbls. butter

1/2 c. raisins (optional)

1 c. buttermilk

1 Tbls. Butter, melted

Sift together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Add raisins, if desired. Add buttermilk. Mix with a fork until moistened.

Knead gently about 1 minute. Shape into a ball. Place dough in a circular pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until top is golden brown. Remove and place on a wire rack to cool. Brush top with melted butter. Makes 1 loaf.
We all really like this bread, however, it wasn't cooked all the way through when following the timing directions. not sure if it was just my oven.
We thought this would be good if we took out the raisins, and had it with some jam.
