Fancy a little luck of the Irish? Take slice of Bobby and Jamie’s lighter Irish soda bread, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 50 min
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 large egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into bits
1/3 cup golden raisins, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons caraway seeds
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray an 8-inch round pie plate with nonstick spray.
Whisk together the buttermilk and egg in a medium bowl until blended. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the buttermilk mixture, raisins, and caraway seeds to form a soft dough.
Lightly sprinkle a work surface with flour and turn out the dough. With lightly floured hands, knead the dough lightly about 6 or 7 times. Form into an 8-inch round and place in the pie plate. Using a small sharp knife, cut a deep “x” into the dough. Dust the top lightly with flour. Bake until browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 45 – 50 minutes. Remove from the pie plate and cool on a rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
