Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day and that means it is time for Irish Soda Bread. No time to bake? Westchester Magazine says one of the best places to get this treat is at Kneaded Bread in Port Chester. Read the article HERE. However, if you want to bake your own loaf here is our favorite recipe:


  • 3 1/2 Cups Sifted All-Purpose Flour
  • 6 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 3 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 3/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Raisins
  • 1 Tbsp Caraway Seeds (optional)
  • 1/2 Stick Melted Butter (4 Tbsp)
  • 2 Beaten Eggs
  • 1 3/4 Cups Buttermilk

Pre-Heat Oven to 350F
Grease a Loaf Pan (9-10″)
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, raisins, caraway seeds).
In a separate bowl, combine butter, buttermilk and eggs.
Slowly mix the liquids into the dry ingredients and form one large mass. Dough should have rather stiff bread consistency.
Place dough in loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes.
Slice. Toast. Butter. Enjoy!
