St. Patrick’s Day

Posted on: March 15th, 2017

Very sad News – Donal is sorry, but he will not be having his St. Patrick’s Day Party. His work schedule doesn’t work! We will all have to figure out our own Irish Celebration.   Here is my Mom’s recipe for Irish Soda Bread – pretty fool proof:

Irish Soda Bread from Suzette Diefenderfer

 Sift together

4 C flour

2 tsp baking powder

¾ tsp baking soda

½ C sugar

1 tsp salt

Add     1 Tb Caraway seeds

            ½ C+ raisins

            ½ C nuts

Mix in

            1 ½ pints sour cream (maybe 2 pints)


Mixture will be sticky. Dampen hands to handle dough. Put on floured board and knead until smooth.   Cut in two, form 2 round loaves. Place on greased cookie sheet.


Bake at 450º for 15 minutes. Turn oven down to 350º and bake 20 – 30 minutes longer until brown on top.
