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!"
