Irish soda bread muffins

I have received this recipe from my friend Martine. I had it for a while before I tried to make soda bread muffins. Irish soda bread is made from nothing more than: flour, baking soda, salt and buttermilk. Fancier version include some sugar, butter for flavour and tenderness and sometimes raisins. These muffins taste like scones for me, I like them very much and they are very satiate, it is hard to eat more that one :). They are perfect for breakfast or brunch, spread with butter and jam.

Ingredients for 12 muffins:
  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1  tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 65g melted butter
  • 55g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 300ml buttermilk
  • handful of raisins

Preheat the oven to 180C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Sift the flour, baking powder, soda and salt into big bowl and whisk them together.

Melt the butter and stir in the sugar. With a fork whisk together buttermilk and egg. Pour this two mixtures into dry ingredients, combine all ingredients together. At last fold in the raisins. Spoon into muffin cases. Bake for 30 min. Cool down on wire rack.
Enjoy !
