Regardless of if you are hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party in your apartment in Raleigh, NC or just cooking an Irish meal to celebrate, you may need a few ideas. No Irish meal is complete without Irish soda Bread. Here is our favorite recipe, complete with whiskey butter!
 
Irish Soda Bread and Whiskey Butter

    1 cup raisins  
    1/2 cup whiskey  
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup white sugar  
    1 tablespoon baking powder  
    1 teaspoon salt  
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda  
    1 tablespoon grated orange peel (optional)  
    1 tablespoon caraway seeds (optional)  
    1 1/3 cups buttermilk  
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    1/2 cup butter at room temperature

Directions

  • Place raisins in a small bowl; pour in whiskey and allow to soak overnight.
  • The next day, drain raisins and reserve the leftover whiskey.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  • Grease a 2-quart casserole dish.
  • Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl.
  • Stir drained raisins, orange peel, and caraway seeds into dry ingredients.
  • Beat in buttermilk and 1/4 cup melted butter to make a thick batter.
