Laurie's Irish Soda Bread

This is an old family favorite!

4 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups buttermilk

Stir dry ingredients then stir in buttermilk. Sprinkle flour on the counter and knead the dough a few times. Break the dough in half into 2 round loaves. Slice an x over the top of each loaf with a serrated knife. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes. Slice and serve.


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup honey

Mix together - you decide the consistency. The more you mix, the fluffier it gets. Or you could barely mix and it will be a smoother consistency. Yummy on Irish soda bread.
