Irish Soda Bread

On Saint Patrick’s day I’ve got surprising gift: Irish Soda Bread. It was gone almost immediately. Very tasty, sweet, a little bit crunchy, just fabulous. Bought at Walmart. Here is link to their recipe.


Nonstick cooking spray
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3 tbsp. unsalted butter, chilled
1 cup lowfat buttermilk
1/2 cup Nestlé® Raisinets® Milk Chocolate-Covered Raisins
1 tbsp. decorating or coarse sugar



  • Preheat oven to 375° F. Spray 8-inch-round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in food processor; pulse to combine (or, combine ingredients in large bowl).
  • Add butter to food processor; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal (or, cut butter into pieces, add to bowl and use fingertips to rub until coarse meal forms).
  • Add buttermilk to food processor; pulse to combine (or, make well in center of flour mixture, then add buttermilk and stir dry ingredients into milk to blend).
  • Turn dough onto floured surface; gently knead in Raisinets. Form into ball. Place ball in prepared pan (dough will not come to edges of pan). Sprinkle top with decorating sugar.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes; remove to wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
