“A recipe handed down by my grandmother Anna Marie McNamara (nee Player). This is a great recipe for a light tea dessert bread. Delicious with light butter hot out of the oven. You can use any type of milk. I usually make this bread when my milk is about to go sour. I like to use raw crystallized sugar in place of the white granulated sugar. My father likes to use buttermilk.”

  4. Mix in butter until thoroughly combined.
  5. Beat in milk, then eggs, then raisins, incorporating each ingredient well before adding the next.
  6. Transfer dough to the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.

This Soda Bread rose well, had a very nice crunchy top & browned nicely. The batter is a bit difficult to handle, for it's stiff & sticky, so it was very hard to transfer from the bowl to the baking pan, even with a strong spatula. This bread is great on the day it's baked, but by the next day, it is all dried out and has no taste. I even tried freezing half of it on the day it was baked, taking it out of the freezer on the day it would be consumed, but that half was still dried out.
