Irish Soda Bread Recipe

I got this Irish soda bread recipe from my mother, Agnes Walters. Sour cream makes it juicy and lasts several days. 

– 4 cups all-purpose flour – 1 cup white sugar – 2 teaspoons baking powder – 1 teaspoon baking soda – ½ teaspoon salt – 1 pint sour cream – 1 cup raisin – 3 egg


Flour Bowl

Step 1

Warm the oven up to 165 degrees C (325 degrees F). Prepare two 8x4-inch loaf pans by greasing them.
