in the family: irish soda bread and beads

 Wayne, my cousin from Bend, Oregon, made this Irish Soda Bread for me and each of my brothers and sisters. That's seven of us! The recipe is simple with simple ingredients. This version reminds me a bit like a huge biscuit or scone. Be sure to have a slice while still warm. Maybe with a cup of hot tea.


1 2/3 C. flour
2 T. sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 large egg
2/3 C. buttermilk
4 T. melted butter
1 C. golden raisins
2 t. caraway seeds

Mix dry ingredients. Add raisins and seeds.
Mix egg, buttermilk and melted butter.
Add to dry mix. Mix until wet, but do not over mix. Dough will be somewhat wet.
Lightly form into a round shape on lightly oiled baking sheet.
Bake 35-40 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Done when toothpick is clean.

Wayne is a stonemason by trade, but he's also a very talented artist, jewelry maker and photographer. I snapped a few photos of his natural gemstone, very textural, necklaces. Here's a sample collage below.
