Default Moms' Irish soda bread

My mom has been making this over 25 years and since St. Patricks day is coming up I thought I would share it. Great with butter on top.Makes a great french toast too.

4 cups all purpose flour
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
6 Tbsp butter
1 1/2 cups dark seedless raisins-she uses sunmaid brand
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease well a 2 Qt aluminum cake pan or you can use a glass bowl that oven safe. In a large bowl with a fork mix first 5 ingredients. then using a fork cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, stir in raisins.

In a small bowl whisk eggs slighlty. remove 1 tbsp of egg and reserve. Stir butter milk into remaining egg, add to flour mixture and stir just until flour is moistened. (dough will be sticky)

Turn dough out onto a well floured surface with floured hand s and knead dough about 10 strokes to mix thoroughly. Shape dough into a ball, place in greased pan. With a sharp knife cut a 4" cross about 1/4 inch deep. Brush dough with reserved egg

Bake dough 1 hour and 20 minutes or until tooth pick inserted comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Makes 1 loaf. To make your own buttermilk use 1 tabelspoon white vinegar per 1 cup whole milk-mix and let set to curdle.
