I made this early this year because I knew I would be away for St. Patrick’s Day. I should have just made a few so I could enjoy it later this week too. I find it funny that my son who does not like raisins in his food LOVES this bread. It is the only food that he will eat with raisins in it. I found this recipe in my recipe box. I have no idea where it originally came from. While I liked this one, I have others I liked better. Recipe is simple:
- 3 c. all-purpose flour
- 3/4 c. granulated sugar
- 1 T. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 1/4 c raisins
- 1 3/4 c. buttermilk
- 2 large eggs; beaten
- 5 T. butter
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Grease your pan with 1 T. of the butter.
- Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl
- Stir until ingredients are combined evenly, then add the raisins.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, melt 2 T. of butter and set aside
- In a medium bowl, combine the buttermilk and beaten eggs.
- Add the melted butter and whisk gently until all ingredients are incorporated.
- Pour this liquid mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
- Pour batter into your prepared pan and top with remaining butter.
- Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in center.
