Irish Soda Bread

This is a fun Irish recipe to try for St. Patrick's Day!
Irish Soda Bread
3 c. flour
2 T. sugar
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1/4 c. butter
1 egg
2 c. buttermilk

Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Cut it butter until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Make a will in the flour mixture and add egg and buttermilk. Mix until just moistened. (Dough will look like biscuit dough.)
In a greased cake pan, form dough into a ball.
Bake at 350 F for about 45 minutes or until browned and sounds hollow when tapped.
This was my first time making this bread and I must say I like it. It is much like a large biscuit and tastes very good with jam or butter.
This will probably become a traditional St. Patrick's Day food for us. Enjoy!
