Irish Soda Bread

My husband was reading a mystery book which kept mentioning Irish soda bread! So , since I am gluten free, I have not made it for him in years! THIS RECIPE IS NOT GLUTEN FREE--SOME TIME I WILL HAVE TO TRY A GLUTEN FREE ONE. THIS IS FOR HUBBY!
I decided to make him a small regular loaf. I couldn't find my original recipe so a browsed online. Oh, below is the mystery book which kept mentioning it! NOTE:This recipe is not real Irish Soda Bread because it doesn't use Baking SODA!!! YIKERS.....but hubby really liked it!

I found this recipe below. It uses simple ingredients, no added oil, and was so easy to make! I just used soymilk instead of regular. It makes a nice small loaf as shown above.





Ingredients
cooking spray or butter for the pan
2 cups flour, plus more for the pan
1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons caraway seeds (If you don't like them you can leave them out)
1/2 cup raisins
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk (I used soy milk)


Directions
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Spray pan with cooking spray or rub with butter. Dust bottom and sides of pan with flour.
In a large bowl, mix together 2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt with a wooden spoon.
Stir in seeds and raisins.
With a fork lightly beat the eggs and milk.
Gradually add eggs and milk mixture to dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until mixture forms a sticky, thick dough.
Turn the dough into a 5 x 9 loaf pan or a round 8-inch pan. Sprinkle a little flour on the top.
Bake for 1 hour for loaf pan or 50 minutes for round.NOTE: I COOKED MINE IN AN 8 INCH CAKE PAN AND IT ONLY TOOK 25 MINUTES. I DIDN'T EVEN PLACE THE DOUGH TO THE VERY EDGES OF THE PAN , BUT IT EXPANDED.
Turn out of pan onto wire rack to cool. Slice, serve, and enjo
