St. Patrick’s Day Recipe!

Updated: Mar 17


In honor of St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, Blooming Daisies Crafts wanted to give you a tried and true recipe from our test kitchen! No, it is not how to make corned beef and cabbage (which, by the way, is very easy!) This is a recipe for “Irish” Soda Bread”! I did not run it past the Irish daughter in law, so I cannot corroborate the authenticity. However, I can attest to it being yummy!



“Irish” Soda Bread


Makes: 20 wedge-shaped slices

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Bake at 350 degrees for 75 minutes


4 cups plus 1 T all-purpose flour

1/2 c sugar

2 t baking powder

1 t baking soda

3/4 t salt

3 cups dark seedless raisins (or currants)

1 T caraway seeds, optional

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 1/4 c buttermilk

1 c sour cream


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch round cast iron skillet or baking pan.

Mix 4 cups of the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, raisins and caraway seeds in a bowl. Blend eggs, buttermilk and sour cream in another bowl. Stir into flour mixture just until moistened.

Knead dough for 10 strokes in bowl; dough will be very sticky. Shape into a ball; place in skillet. Cut a 4 inch X 3/4” deep, across top of dough. Sprinkle with remaining tablespoon flour, use a sifter for it to be a light dusting.

Bake at 350 degrees for 65 to 75 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center tests clean. Cool 10 minutes. Turn out onto wire rack; cool completely.


Just know that it is probably being turned out of the pan in my sister’s kitchen as you read this. It makes for a delicious dessert. And breakfast bread. The number of servings is relative. My relatives put the number closer to 12. Let us know if you try it and what you think!
