Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2

Coat a 9 inch round pan with cooking spray.

Step 3

In a large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients (flours - salt)and with your fingers or a pastry blender (I use the two knives in place of a pastry blender), cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in raisins and caraway seeds and then pour the buttermilk over the top of the mixture; stir with a fork until the mixture is combined and holds together.

Step 4

Transfer to a floured board and knead about 20 times or so or until smooth. With lightly floured hands shape into 10 balls. Place balls in the pan. With a knife, cut an "x" on top of each ball.

Step 5

Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Great Irish Soda Bread! I used a combo of golden raisins, dried cranberries and dried cherries (I had a random package of that and needed to use it). Otherwise, I followed the recipe as directed! I love soda breads because they're fast to make and everyone at my tables loves fresh-from-the-oven, still warm bread. Made for Billboard Tag & St. Pat's Day Event 2023.

We loved these Irish Soda Buns. They were quick and easy to make with lovely results. The buns were very flavorful and had a nice texture. We really enjoyed the golden raisins and caraway seeds in the buns. I made 1/2 the batch and ended up with 5 lovely buns. Thanks for sharing.

I made these to be a part of our St Patrick's Day supper. I omitted the caraway seeds per our personal preferences. They were good, though a little dry.

St. Patrick's Day was complete with these rolls as part of my dinner. They were delicious and very much enjoyed!

Great soda bread. Loved the caraway. I left out the raisins (don't like them). I need to work on my "X" cutting skills, as you can see from my photos-didn't cut them deep enough. This was great with our lamb stew.
