Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Ok with that said here is today’s recipe. It is supposed to be a “Family” recipe today and being St. Patrick’s Day I found a recipe I got from my former mother-in-law. I have made this recipe a few times but it has been awhile. It’s funny how nobody thinks to make this other than around St. Patrick’s Day. Baking is not usually one of my strong points but this recipe is easy and I didn’t mess it up.


3 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 TBS baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup raisins

1 TBS caraway seeds

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

4 TBS butter, melted


1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 2 quart round casserole dish.

2: In a medium-size bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Stir in raisins and caraway seeds.

3: With a fork, blend in buttermilk and melted butter until evenly moist. Turn into casserole dish and cut an “X” on top.

4: Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove from casserole dish and cool.
