Once you make this soda bread, it is best served with a nice cup of Punjana Irish Breakfast Tea.
St Patricks Day 2018 is this coming Saturday. Celebrate the day and bake a Soda Bread, a classic Irish item. The recipe below is easy to bake and makes 3 loaves, so you can share.
2 tsp baking powder
2 pinches salt
5 lb plain flour
3 oz raisins
3 oz dried apricots
1 pt buttermilk
Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease loaf tin. Sieve all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add buttermilk slowly and mix to a soft, sticky consistency. Pour mixture into tin. Place in oven for 45 mins. When cooked, the bottom will sound hollow when you tap it with your finger. Remove from oven, let cool on a bread rack. Slice and serve.
