Irish Soda Bread Recipe - NY Daily News

Okay... tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day and you want something easy - and cheap - to mark the occasion.

Irish Soda Bread goes well with a corned beef and cabbage dinner or anything else you're serving.

And the cops will love you.

Here's the Irish Soda Bread recipe that I clipped from The New York Daily News 50 years ago. Absolutely Hobbit free.


grease cookie pan
preheat oven to 375º
bake 45 min. + 10 min.

3 Cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
stir in
1/2 Cup currants
stir in
1 1/3 Cups buttermilk

Knead on a floured board
shape into a round loaf
place on prepared pan
cut a cross on top
bake 45 minutes
combine for glaze
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons hot water
remove loaf from oven and brush with glaze
bake 10 minutes

Faith and beggorah! 'Tis a fine recipe.

Have a great St. Patrick's Day. How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
