Matt Murphy was the chef of the now closed Irish House. With St. Patrick’s Day approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to share two Irish dishes.
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
2 teaspoons Powdered Sugar
1 stick Butter, divided
1 cup Raisins
1 cup Buttermilk
Preheat oven to 375℉. Butter and flour a baking sheet and set aside.
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and powdered sugar in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture until the consistency is flaky. Stir in raisins and buttermilk and form into a ball. The dough will be soft.
Place on prepared baking sheet, and cut an X in the top of the loaf with a sharp knife. Bake for 40 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
