How to Make Marsha's Irish soda bread


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients together but the raisins. After everything is mixed, add drained raisins and fold into dough. I grease and flour a pie pan to bake my bread, use whatever works for you but cooking time may vary. Bake anywhere from an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. Stick a knife in middle and check that is baked completely. Sometimes I bake my bread on 350, but of course, would take longer cooking time.
