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.

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.
