Irish Soda Bread

I had no idea that making Irish Soda Bread is so easy. I had a craving--and I remember a very tasty tea (served with this bread) that I had at my friend Claire's house three years ago. So, I got the recipe, made it with Owen (it's that easy) and then made just a few modifications. You still have time for an Irish treat for St. Paddy's Day!

3 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups of flour
1 cup of buttermilk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/3 of a cup of currants (do NOT use raisins!)

Mix everything very well. You don't need to knead or let it rise... Just put it on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 24-27 minutes! Insert a cake tester to make sure it's cooked in the middle. You must serve with butter and tea... If they are really lucky, my co-workers MIGHT get some tomorrow...enjoy!

I'm going to try this, too! I'll bring it in and we can enjoy a 10a.m. tea time. Perhaps with a little Earl Grey...
