In the north of Ireland, soda farls are the Irish soda bread. My grandmother spent the seventy years of her adult life cooking this wonderful bread on an old-fashioned griddle, before serving it up still warm, butter melting slowly over the top.
Ingredients: 3 cups of flour 1 tablespoon of baking powder cup of sugar 1 teaspoon of salt 1 teaspoon of baking soda 1 egg 2 cups of buttermilk ¼ cup of melted butter I added: 1 cup of raisins or a dried fruit your children like Directions:
Traditional Irish Soda Bread does not have raisins or sugar; it was basic bread that the peasants ate with every meal. The bread with the raisins and sugar is dessert bread reserved for special occasions and it is called "Spotted Dog" irish-stuff
