Irish Soda Bread – Roseline Barretts ,a family tradition.
Preheat oven to 375*F, Ingredients. 

3-l/2 cups of flour
2/3 cups of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 tablespoon of baking powder

Mix:    2 tablespoons of soft/melted butter into above mixture.

Add:    1-1/2 cups raisins
            1 tablespoon caraway seeds
            2 beaten eggs
            1-1/2 cup of buttermilk.

Gradually stir in the added items and mix and evenly distribute
Pour Mix: Pour into lightly greased loaf pan
Bake: 375*F for 1 hour.
Cool on Rack.  Enjoy. This is a traditional recipe. It makes a great loaf of Soda Bread, easy to cut into slices and butter, delicious.

Alternate(s): (a) Round Loaf Style. If you want the rounded soda bread look, shape the dough into a round loaf, and place on a reased baking sheet. Cut an “X” on the top and over the sides of the loaf. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the bread sounds hollow when tapped. 
(b) Caraway Seeds. Some of the younger irish don’t enjoy the caraway seeds in the bread. It is acceptable to remove without substitution.
(c) Raisins: the traditional bread uses brown. To lighten up the loaf, you can use brown or golden or a ½ and ½ mixed.
