Prep and Baking Directions

In Bowl # 1, slice up butter and blend all the ingredients with your hands until it’s like sand and pebbles.

Irish Soda Bread is best prepared in a cast iron skillet.  Place the skillet (or alternate pan if you don’t have an iron skillet) in the oven with about 2-3 tablespoons of butter in it (2 or 3 min) to get it hot…. take it out of the oven and fill your pan with your soda bread batter.  Return to the oven and  Bake at 350° F for approximately 1 hr. 15 min.
