Grandma Murphy's "Soon to be Famous" Irish Soda Bread


3 cups white flour

1 Tablespoon of salt (you may want to add less salt if your margarine is salted)

1 1/2 level teaspoons of baking soda

1 1/2 level teaspoons of baking powder

pinch of cream of tartar (helps raise the bread)

2 Tablespoons sugar

Whip 1-2 eggs with 1 cup buttermilk

1 full cup raisins

3/4 stick melted margarine



Grandma Murphy's recipe says:


"Mix all and adjust for consistency"

"Cook for 45 minutes in a 375 degree preheated oven"


I mixed all the ingredients in a large bowl but I didn't have to adjust the quantities. My baking time was 45 minutes @ 375 degrees (a wooden skewer should come out clean when inserted in the middle).


"Enjoy with Irishmen, Irish tea, whiskey and Guiness!"
