- 5 cups flour
- 5 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp soda
- 1/8 tsp salt
- One pint buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 1 cup sugar
- Fist-full of crisco (about 1/4 cup)
- 1 stick margarine (or butter)
Put all ingredients in mixer, mix, and “dump” into 2 loaf pans (or 1 larger baking pan), and cook about 50 minutes at 350 degrees.
Tastes good with just butter on it, warm or cold! This recipe came from Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada!
Memory: I can’t help but remember good times growing up when I smell Irish bread baking in the oven. Fiddle music, and Dad step dancing, “tuning” with my sons on his knee when they were little.
