Two Irish recipes from Regina Gokey

Gokey's Irish Bread

5 c. flour 2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. sugar 1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 to 2 Tbsp. caraway seeds ( my family does not care for caraway seeds; so, I skip them!!)
1/2 c. raisins 1 Tbsp. vinegar
1 3/4 c. milk 1 egg

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt ingredients. Cut in with a fork, the margarine/butter. Add the caraway seeds and the raisins.
Mix the milk with the vinegar and add in the egg to the milk mixture (this sours the milk and is necessary to make the bread.) Add milk mixture to the dry ingredients. More milk may be added if mixture is too stiff.
Put into a round baking pan or large cast iron skillet, greased. I use a cast iron skillet and grease it with butter bottom and sides (grease well) Do not flour the pan!
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hours or until top is light brown. Remove from pan and rub top and sides with butter and wrap tightly in tin foil.
We love the bread served warm or cold with butter. Enjoy!!


Irish dessert - enjoy!
