Irish Soda Bread

INGREDIENTS (with Amazon Links)


  1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and caraway seed.
  3. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or whisk until thoroughly combined.
  4. Mix in the egg, sour cream, and buttermilk until you have a sticky dough.
  5. Pour the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until soft, adding more flour as needed.
  6. Place dough into a 9 inch round pan (I just used a glass pie pan) and cut a deep x in the center.
  7. Bake at 375 for about 40 minutes or until a nice golden brown. Brush with a little melted butter. Cool at room temperature.
