When Irish Eyes are smiling...
Happy Saint Patrick's Day!!!

Here is a lovely recipe for:
Irish Soda Bread (given to me by Rosemary a quilting friend)
it's really really good...
3 c Flour
1 c Sugar
1 tbsp Caraway Seeds
1 c Raisins
4 tsp Baking Powder
Combine above in a large bowl
in separate bowl mix:
1tsp Melted Butter
2 Beaten Eggs
dash of Salt
1 c Milk
Add Dry Mixture stirring well... Form in Greased round pan.  Sprinkle sugar on top and dot with butter.
bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until golden brown.
(she flours and sugars the cake pan.  She also soaks the raisins in water for a while before adding to dry mix)
When you finish sprinkling with sugar and putting butter on top make an X on top. (she says it's not necessary but she always does it!)  This is soooo good!!! you will not regret taking time to make it!
Resurrection as it is this morning...

until later...
