St. Patties day is not too far off. Lot's of ways to make this traditional bread but I like this one...
2 1/2 C all-purpose flour
1 1/2 Tsp baking soda
1 Tbl baking powder
1/2 Tsp salt
3 Tbl white sugar
1/2 C butter cut into pieces
1 C raisins
1/2 C currants
2 teaspoons caraway seed (if you want)
3/4 C milk
3 Tbl apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Grease 2 baking sheets.
Stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder,
salt, and sugar in a large bowl until evenly blended.
Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or your hands until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
Stir in the raisins, currants, and caraway seeds, make a well in the center and pour in the milk and vinegar.
Stir with a spoon until the dry ingredients are moistened.
Turn the dough out onto a well floured work surface, and knead gently 8 to 10 times. Divide the dough into two balls, and place onto the prepared baking sheets.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190
degrees C), and bake until the top of the bread is golden brown, about 15 minutes more.
