Memom's Irish Soda Bread

As promised, here is my grandma's recipe for Irish Soda Bread. Memom sure does bake a mean Irish Soda Bread -- I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as my family does!

1.5 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
1.5 cups raisins
3 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Combine buttermilk, egg, melted butter and raisins. Set aside. Combine dry ingredients, then add milk mixture. Stir for about 2 minutes, or until well combined. Spoon mixture into a greased and floured loaf 9x5 inch loaf pan. Bake for approximately one hour, or until testing stick comes out clean. Let rest in pan before removing. Enjoy!
