Grandma Murphy's Irish Soda Bread

Another great recipe from my IRISH SODA BREAD SHOWDOWN, courtesy of Dan Murphy. This soda bread has a lovely texture with a hint of sweetness. It's also the only soda bread recipe I've come across that uses margarine!

Grandma Murphy's "Soon to be Famous" Irish Soda Bread

3 cups white flour
1 Tablespoon of salt (you may want to add less salt if your margarine is salted)
1 1/2 level teaspoons of baking soda
1 1/2 level teaspoons of baking powder
pinch of cream of tartar (helps raise the bread)
2 Tablespoons sugar
Whip 1-2 eggs with 1 cup buttermilk
1 full cup raisins
3/4 stick melted margarine

Grandma Murphy's recipe says:

"Mix all and adjust for consistency"
"Cook for 45 minutes in a 375 degree preheated oven"

I mixed all the ingredients in a large bowl but I didn't have to adjust the quantities. My baking time was 45 minutes @ 375 degrees (a wooden skewer should come out clean when inserted in the middle).

"Enjoy with Irishmen, Irish tea, whiskey and Guiness!"
Thanks to Dan Murphy for sharing his grandma's secret recipe!
