Irish Rosie’s Irish Soda Bread

My husbands Irish grandmother was also named Rosie so I’ve often wondered if this was her recipe. I found it on the web and made it for the past few St. Patrick’s Days and it’s absolutely delicious. Very moist, soft, not dry, with a touch of sugar and those caraway seeds give it an extra pizazz. So easy and delicious! Can’t wait to make Rosie’s Irish soda bread again!

Ingredients for Irish soda bread

  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pint sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons caraway seeds ( optional but I always use them)
  • 3/4 cup raisins



  1. Combine dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl beat eggs and stir in sour cream.
  3. Add the egg and sour cream mixture to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon.
  4. Batter will be very thick.
  5. Add the raisins and caraway seeds and stir well with wooden spoon or knead in with your hands.
  6. Place batter in a greased 9 inch springform pan.
  7. Dust the top with enough flour so that you can pat the batter like a bread dough evenly in the pan without it sticking to your hands.
  8. With a knife make a shallow crisscross on the top.
  9. Bake for 50 minutes in a preheated 350ºF oven.

The best Irish soda bread around! My husband couldn’t stop eating it!
