This is my mother's recipe. She makes it several times a week for some function or another. My sister loves this so much she has to control herself or she would eat a whole one with a stick of butter! I usually only make this easy soda bread for events that my mother can't come to! Slice into wedges, butter, and enjoy!

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, cut together the self-rising flour, sugar, and butter with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the raisins. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg with 1 cup of milk. Lightly mix the milk mixture into the flour mixture until it holds together. Place dough in prepared baking dish, and brush top with 1 tablespoon of milk for a nice golden brown crust.
  3. Place the bread into the preheated oven. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake for 1 hour. Let cool before serving.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I just pulled this out of the oven and tried a piece, and I really like it. It's slightly sweet and the crumb almost reminds me of cornbread. My husband just tried a bite and said, "Oh, that is good!" It doesn't matter to me if it's truly authentic or not, I just wanted something tasty to serve. Thank you for an easy and tasty recipe to serve with St. Patrick's Day dinner!

I had to make this since my ancestors are from County Cork! It is awesome right out of the oven. No butter needed. I didn't have raisins, but I didn't miss them at all.

True to its name. My grandmother is also from County Cork and this is exactly the recipe she uses.
