Irish Soda Bread

The first time I had ever tried Irish Soda Bread was when I was in Dublin, Ireland. We had gone to the Jameson Whiskey Distillery for my father as he is obsessed with aged whiskeys and how they are made. When we were there, they had an area there to have lunch. This place had the most amazing homemade soup I had ever had, but more importantly they had soda bread made with Jameson Whiskey. I wish that I could have gotten their recipe but the most common one now is as fallows;

  • 1 cup raisins
  • ½ cup whiskey
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup of white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powderPicture4
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon grates orange peel
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 1 1/3 cups buttermilk
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup butter at room temperature
