Make some delicious Irish Bread for this year’s St. Patrick’s day celebration with this recipe. Enjoy a loaf of soft bread with raisins and dried currants.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch cast-iron skillet.

  2. Pour hot water over raisins and currants in a bowl and let soak. Whisk flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl until well combined, then whisk in buttermilk.

  3. Drain raisins and currants and pat dry with paper towels. Fold into dough.

  4. Turn dough out onto a floured work surface and knead gently until it holds its shape. If dough is too sticky, knead in more flour.

  5. Form into a round and place into prepared cast iron skillet. Use a sharp knife to cut a cross into the top of the loaf.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour, or until golden brown and a slender knife inserted into the loaf comes out clean.

Recipe Notes

You may use 2 cups of raisins instead of currants. If you sour your own milk, use a little less. Just pour it in gradually.
