This bread doesn't use yeast and there's a good reason! Yeast doesn't make the soft wheat that grows in Ireland rise very well.
You can make do with 3 cups of white flour instead of the two + one mix in the recipe.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk or plain yogurt
- 3/4 cup raisins
- 2 eggs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Combine dry ingredients.
Mix eggs and buttermilk. Add to the dry ingredients. Add raisins and mix.
Pour dough onto lightly floured board and knead 10 times (fun for the kids!).
Shape into a round loaf, adding flour if necessary.
Place in a lightly greased pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour or until the bottom of the loaf.
Sounds hollow when tapped.
