Sweet Irish Soda Bread

Makes 1 9-inch loaf

3 cups all-purpose flour    

1/2 tsp. salt       

1 tsp. baking soda

1 Tbsp. baking powder                     

1 tsp. cinnamon 

1/2 cup sugar    

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup currants, dried

1/2 cup golden raisins                                     

1 3/4 cup whole milk

4 egg yolks, well beaten                   

2 Tbsp. butter, melted                                    

Butter, as needed

Honey Butter:

1 Tbsp. honey

1 recipe fresh unsalted butter, room temperature

1 tsp. salt

In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine all butter ingredients until well combined.  Remove butter from bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.

Sift all dry ingredients together into a large mixing bowl. Add currants and raisins to dry ingredients and toss to coat.

In a separate bowl, mix together milk, eggs, and melted butter.  Add liquid ingredients, to the dry ingredients.  Mix to combine.

Butter the inside of a skillet (or a 9-inch loaf pan). Fill with batter. Smooth batter with a rubber spatula and lightly dot top of loaf with butter. Cook soda bread in preheated 350°F oven until risen and golden brown, about 1 hour.  Remove from oven, cool for about 10 minutes, and turn out onto a wire cooling rack to complete cooling.

Serve warm with plenty of fresh honey butter.
