Soda Bread With Raisins

A basic soda bread contains just 4 ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt and buttermilk. However, this plain soda bread has been transformed into a lovely golden brown soda bread with raisins by adding a touch of sugar, some golden raisins and butter. The creamy texture of the buttermilk makes this soda bread all so tender. This soda bread is best made the day before or several hours before serving as it tastes best after sitting for a few hours.

Notes

You can test that the bread is fully baked by tapping the bottom of the pan - it should sound hollow.
This bread is a soft dough, so you must use a bread pan to bake, unlike other soda breads that you can shape into a loaf.
The key to a good soda bread is not to over mix.
