Nana's Soda Bread

Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone from BISCo. headquarters. 

I would like to share with you a very special recipe from my Nana's kitchen.  Nana was a great cook who loved to show her family love by preparing meals and opening her home to everyone.  One tidbit, I never once saw her wear a pair of pants-dresses and skirts only for this lady.  One of Nana's specialties was Irish Soda Bread.  I would like to share this with you today and may you have the luck of the Irish in making it.  

Nana's Irish Soda Bread 
4 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
3 oz sugar
3/4 cup raisins
2 cups buttermilk

Mix all dry ingredients then add the buttermilk. Kneed into a dough. Form a loaf and bake at
350 for one hour.   Enjoy with some butter and a strong cup of tea.
