irresistable irish soda bread (from allrecipes)

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda. Blend egg and buttermilk together, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened. Stir in butter. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 65 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Wrap in foil for several hours, or overnight, for best flavor.

neat trick: you can substitute 1 tbsp white vinegar + enough milk to make 1 cup = buttermilk.

i also forgot the baking POWDER. yes, recipe calls for soda and powder. i’m getting old.

but it still turned out great! my coworkers loved it. i loved it. the loaf pan is empty. success!!!!!!!!!

ps. the reviewers keep harping about adding raisins to it but nosiree. no raisins in mine. i am anti-raisins. but pro-blackberry jam. delish.

happy st. patrick’s day.
