Ingredients:  
2 c. flour (Hecker's flour is preferred)
1/2 c. sugar
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 T. butter
1 c. buttermilk
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg
1 T. caraway seeds
1/2 c. raisins

Directions:
Directions:
Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. (Hand is preferred to mixer.) Cut butter into the mix. Add egg, raisins, caraway seeds and buttermilk and stir until moist. Mixture will be thick and sticky.

Pour or "plop" into the middle of a greased and floured pie or bread pan. No need to spread dough out....it will spread out during baking.

Bake in a preheated 350 F. oven for 50-60 minutes until brown on top and it looks crusty but not too hard. Take out and cool.....or eat it piping hot!

Note: If you make 4 loaves at a time (and use a quart of buttermilk) ....the bread freezes very well. Be sure to use 4 separate bowls or it will be hard to mix the ingredients!

What would St. Patrick's Day be without some good Irish Soda Bread? My friend Jean Campbell from Immaculate H.S. shared her family recipe with me.
