Irish Soda Bread on St Patrick’s Day

Merry St Patrick’s Day!  I am not even slightly Irish, but I have been to Dublin once, and I like to bake so I thought I would make some Irish soda bread for breakfast.

Even the weather today is authentic Irish, cold, wet and grey.  I am rather hoping Spring will bounce around the corner soon.

I found a recipe on Pinterest which I adapted to suit what was in my cupboard and here it is.

Irish soda bread

Mix 2 cups all purpose/plain flour, 2 cups bread flour with 1/4 cup raw sugar, 1tsp baking soda, 2tsp baking powder and 1tsp cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, mix 2 eggs, 1 1/4 cup plain yoghurt and 1/4 cup olive oil.
Quickly mix the wet into the dry  and add 1 cup raisins. It will seem quite dry but keep kneading and it will come together. Knead on the worksurface until the bottom is smooth and you have a flat ball shape.
Place on a baking sheet and cut the top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

Cool for a few minutes, then eat it all up with jam or your favourite breakfast spread.
