It has been almost one whole month since my last post!! I took an unintentional vacation from blogging and actually lived in the real world for practically a whole month!! I have been thrifting and having buyers remorse, hahahah! I need to find a place in my area that I can "rent space". If anyone is reading this and you live in the Delaware/Chester county areas and know of a place that I could put my treasures to sell, please let me know!! I along with my husband would greatly appreciate it!! In honor of St. Patrick's Day this Monday, I thought I would give a wonderfully easy and delicious recipe that was given to me about 25 years ago for Irish Soda Bread; and a quick update on my window boxes.
Recipe for soda bread by Ann O'Dowd (I have never met her!)
Preheat oven to 350 and grease cake pan.
(325 for dark pan)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup reg sugar
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
a pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
a handful of raisins
1 cup buttermilk (if you don't have this you can add 2 T white vinegar and then add milk to measure 1 cup. Let it sit a few minutes so it can curdle)
Mix dry ingredients til well blended then add milk - stir til moist then turn into a greased cake pan - bake 1 hour - let cool slightly then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely. TaDa! Yum Yum! Served best with butter on each piece.
