How to Make Irish Bannock

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheated oven to 375°F (190°C). Lightly grease a baking sheet; set aside.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter into flour mixture with pastry cutter. Add buttermilk until dough is soft. Stir in currants and raisins.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth. Form dough into a 7 inch round. Place on prepared baking sheet (or you can use an 8- or 9-inch round cake pan, greased). Using a sharp knife, score a 1/2 inch deep cross on the top. This allows the loaf to expand.
  4. Bake at 375°F for 40 minutes or until golden brown on top. Serve warm with butter or jam.
