NY Daily News' Irish Soda Bread - Margaret Ullrich

Okay... tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day and you want something easy - and cheap - to mark the occasion.

Irish Soda Bread goes well with a corned beef and cabbage dinner, or anything else.  

And the cops will love you.  

Here's the Irish Soda Bread recipe that I clipped from The New York Daily News fifty years ago.  

                        Irish Soda Bread
grease cookie pan         
preheat oven to 375º           
bake 45 min. + 10 min.

3 Cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Stir in 
   1/2 Cup currants or raisins 
1 1/3 Cups buttermilk

Knead on a floured board 
Shape into a round loaf
Place on greased pan
Cut a cross on top
Bake 45 minutes
Combine for glaze
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons hot water
Remove loaf from oven and brush with glaze
Bake 10 minutes

Faith and beggorah!  'Tis a fine recipe.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
