Don’t Shy Away From Cooking Because of Your Ethnic Background

Hi everyone! I am reposting my Irish Soda Bread recipe from years past that has been known to make people think that I was born in Dublin-it’s that good!

Please don’t let your ethnic background be a deterrent to cooking dishes from a country that is not your country of family origin. Is Bobby Flay from the Southwest? With that NY accent, I think not!

Do you make any recipes from another culture that is not your own and rock it? Please tell all!

I hope you like my recipe!

Irish Soda Bread:

1/4 cup white sugar
3 cups white flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup Crisco or veg. shortening (they have one without hydrogenated oils at Whole Foods now which is great!)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk or whole milk
1 cup golden raisins
1 TBS caraway seeds

Sift first 5 ingredients together (buy a sifter!). With a fork, beat into dry ingredients the egg, crisco, and milk. When all are combined, mix in raisins and caraway seeds. Form into a ball, dust the ball with flour, and lay on a greased, round cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees until a fork comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Enjoy!
