This quick and easy Irish bread results in a deliciously moist and perfectly dense bread, ready for a generous spread of butter.

Serving Suggestions

Serve toasted alongside a cup of tea. Serve with sweet Honey Butter or savory Country Onion Herb Butter.


3 cups plus 1 tsp. all-purpose flour

1/4 cup white sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces

1/2 cup currants, raisins, or dried cranberries

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe


In a small bowl, combine 3 cups flour, sugar, baking soda, and Fine Pink Himalayan Sea Salt. With a pastry blender or a fork, cut butter into dry mixture until it resembles a coarse meal. Stir in dried fruit of choice, Dutch Caraway Seeds, Cracked Rosemary, and Parsley. Pour in buttermilk and mix until dough comes together. Knead for 30 seconds in the bowl. Turn dough out onto a heavily floured surface (dough will be very sticky) and knead another minute. Do not over-knead the dough. Shape into a round loaf and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle remaining 1 tsp. flour over top of the loaf. Cut a large "X" across the top of the loaf, approximately 1-inch deep. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 min., or until golden brown. Let cool before slicing.
