St Patrick's Day Irish Soda Bread Recipe
This is not our ordinary blog, but it is St. Patrick's Day and after a 2 year hiatus, the parades are back and the streets are painted with green lines here in the Northeast. We here at SERVPRO of White Plains would love to put a spin on our normal blogs and add bit of The Luck of the Irish. We would like to share an Irish Soda Bread Recipe that has been passed down 4 generations.

Baking Soda, 1 TSP Salt, 1 Stick of Cold Butter cut in to small pieces or grated, 2 Cups of Raisins or Currants, 2 TBL Caraway Seeds, 2 Eggs, 1 Yolk for brushing the bread, and 1 1/2 Cups Cold Buttermilk.
