My brother Jerry could be counted on to bring a couple of loaves of this wonderful Irish soda bread along with a pot of Boston Baked Beans to just about any family gathering. Here is his recipe for Irish Bread as shared with the family by brother John.
JERRY'S IRISH BREAD
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
In a Large Bowl, Mix (Fork)
3 Cups FLOUR
1 Tablespoon BAKING POWDER
½ Teaspoon SALT
In a Small Bowl Mix
2 EGGS (Beaten)
1/3 Cup SUGAR
1/8 Cup OIL
1-1/4 Cup MILK
ADD WET TO DRY & HAND/MIX FOLD--IT SHOULD BE VERY THICK
ADD 1 Tablespoon CARAWAY SEEDS (1 tsp if you don't like) 1 Cup RAISINS
SPOON INTO GREASED LOAF PAN, SPRINKLE SUGAR ON TOP
AFTER OVEN REACHES 375 DEGREES, BAKE FOR 50 MINUTES.
I'll add a photo when I bake this myself. It would look very similar to "Mr. Nick's" Irish Bread recipe posted here in March 2009. Jerry would bake them in long loaf tins similar to Trina's Irish Brown Bread posted here in April 2009.
