Traditionally Irish soda bread is baked in a round a loaf and sliced to serve. To make things simpler for everyone we are baking mini loaves so everyone can have their own loaf!
Here is what you’ll need to make a bunch of mini loaves:
A mini loaf pan or two.
2.25 cups all purpose four
0.5 cup sugar
1 table spoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
0.5 teaspoon salt
0.25 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 large egg
1 cup buttermilk
0.25 cup butter
0.25 cup canola oil
0.75 cup raisins
In a large bowl combine the 2.25 cups flour, 0.5 cup sugar, baking power, salt, baking soda and caraway seeds. In another smaller bowl beat the egg, buttermilk and oil together. Stir your wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just moist. Do not over stir!
Fill greased mini loaf pan about ¾ full. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 400°F for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and removed from the center cleanly. Cool five minutes before removing loaves from pan.
Serve warm or cold, these are delicious either way!
