We didn’t have corned beef and cabbage at our home…. we had corned beef and roasted potatoes, and other veggies. This year I got a Nathan’s brand corned beef from our local market and it turned out great!
We also had the best Irish soda bread. I got the recipe from a dear friend several years ago and make it every year.
Here’s the recipe:
4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups buttermilk or regular milk
1 cup raisins (rinsed so they don’t stick together)
1 egg (beaten)
Mix all ingredients together. Pour in a cast iron skillet (grease and flour well). Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar on top. Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Let cool 1 hour in pan. Remove and cool completely.
