    1 hr 15 mins


  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, caraway seeds, baking powder, salt, and baking soda until the mixture is well combined. In another bowl, whisk the eggs with the sour cream. Gently stir the sour cream mixture into the flour mixture until the dough just comes together; mix in raisins. Spoon the dough into the prepared springform pan.
  3. Bake until the bread has risen and the top is golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of the bread should come out clean. Cool the bread in the pan for 10 minutes before attempting to loosen the sides of the pan for removal. Cut into wedges and serve warm.

Absolutely delicious and soooo easy! My husband, a firefighter, has had many an irish soda bread over the years and rated this one right at the top! I used a 9" cake pan instead of a springform and it came out beautifully! Actual baking time was closer to 50-55 minutes, but otherwise a wonderful recipe!!

The top was very much done, but the toothpick never came out clean from the middle. I wasn't thrilled with the end result.

A winner! I followed the recipe exactly and found the new love of my life! My husband and our dear neighbor were so complimentary, I'll surely make it again. This was soda bread was a perfect pairing for the corned beef and cabbage dinner last night. Thank you, Macomb!

I have never had this bread before. I am so glad allrecipes featured it, or I would never have known about it. It was delicious! I made it for St. Patrick's Day along with corned beef and some slaw. Oh my, was it good! The flavor and texture were terrific. My whole family loved it. The bread turned out beautifully. I should have taken a picture and posted it, because it looked like something you would buy from a bakery. It was also very easy to make, so it definitely deserves 5 stars!
