    Irish Soda Bread Irish Soda Bread

    3 tablespoons stick margarine or butter,* softened
    2 1/2 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup raisins, if desired
    3/4 cup buttermilk

    Heat oven to 375 F. Grease cookie sheet.

    Cut margarine into flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt in large bowl, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in raisins and just enough buttermilk so dough leaves side of bowl.

    Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth. Shape into round loaf, about 6 1/2 inches in diameter. Place on cookie sheet. Cut an X shape about 1/2 inch deep through loaf with floured knife.

    Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with margarine or butter, softened, if desired.

    *Spreads with at least 65% vegetable oil can be substituted.

    Makes 1 loaf, 14 slices
