Margaret Mulligans Irish Soda Bread
- 4 C. all purpose flour
- 2 C. buttermilk
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1 tsp. caraway seeds
- 1 C. raisins
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 C. sugar
Mix the dry ingredients, then add 2 cups buttermilk. Mix thoroughly.
Batter will be somewhat lumpy. At this time you may need to add a small amount of buttermilk. Smooth out the batter into a greased and lightly floured iron skillet. Smooth out the batter with a wooden spoon, using small amounts of buttermilk, if needed, to assist. Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees for 55 min. or until when knife inserted comes out clear. Remove skillet from oven and place on stove top to cool. Rub butter and dribble honey over top if desired.
