CNYEats A Taste of Utica Irish Soda Bread

by Joanne on May 24, 2010

There is no yeast in this bread recipe.  There is no sugar in this bread recipe.  There IS a blend of interesting flavors and a sweetness that comes only from the raisins. 


This recipe is going on Apple Crumbles favorites list.

On page 55 of our book, A Taste of Utica, DSC_0355  Toni Leone Guzski has posted another good recipe.  It is easy and it is good and it’s NOT just for the Irish nor is it only for St. Patrick’s Day.  This bread recipe is recommended for baking at least once per month.  It’s THAT good. 


The bread ingredients went together in 10 minutes and was baked and ready to eat in 45 minutes.  Can’t beat that!



  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 TBS Caraway Seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and caraway seeds.  Add the raisins and buttermilk and knead on a floured board or countertop approximately 5 times. 

Spray a 9” to 10” round pan with non-stick spray.  Put the dough into the pan and bake for 35 – 40 minutes.
