Courtwood Inn’s Irish Soda Bread
This is a very easy side to make with a brunch entree. We love toasted slices with a little butter on them.
1 3/4 c. flour
2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
½ t. baking soda
1/3 c. dried cranberries or other dried fruit
1/3 c. chopped walnuts
1/3 c. melted butter
2/3 c. buttermilk
Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a large bowl. Then add the melted butter and buttermilk. The dough will be soft and a bit sticky. Make a mound of the dough on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper and bake around 25 minutes at 375 degrees. The edges should turn nice and golden brown.
