Irresistible Irish Soda Bread, from Gael

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread, from Gael

Found on This is a nice simple soda bread with a touch of sweetness. Rob said it reminded him of donuts -- maybe due to the buttermilk? I first made it in February 2007. Would like to make it again and maybe add berries or something to liven it up, but it's great plain, too.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. (I also lightly floured pan, bread slid out perfectly.)

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda. Blend egg and buttermilk together, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened. Stir in butter. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake for 65 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Wrap in foil for several hours, or overnight, for best flavor.
