INGREDIENTS

3 ¾ Cups Unbleached Flour

½ Cup Sugar

4 Teaspoons Baking Powder

½ Teaspoon Baking Soda

½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt

¼ Pound Cold Unsalted Butter Cut Into Small Cubes

1 2/3 Cups Raisins

2 Teaspoons Caraway Seeds

3 Large Room Temperature Eggs

1 Cup Buttermilk

Preheat your oven to 400° F. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan. In a large size bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture is the texture of fine meal. Stir in the raisins and caraway seeds. In a medium size bowl whisk two of the eggs to combine. Whisk in the buttermilk. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Put the dough on a floured work surface and pat into a loaf. Now pat into the prepared pan. Beat the last egg to a mix and brush the top of the loaf with it. Using a sharp knife cut a ¼ inch deep lengthwise slash down the middle of the loaf leaving 1 inch margin at either end. Bake the soda bread in the middle of the oven for 1 hour until well browned. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes. Turn the loaf out onto a rack and let cool. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes one 9 inch soda bread.
