Irish Bread

... A SilverStringer  special...

by Mary MacDougall

3 cups Flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup sugar
4 level tsps. baking powder
1 stick Promise Light Margarine
1 1/2 cups raisins (I use part golden and part California seedless)
1 tbsp. caraway seeds
1 1/4 cups skim milk

Blend first five ingredients. (I use my hand pastry blender that I use to make pie crust). Soak raisins in warm water for five or ten minutes, drain and add to dough. Throw in caraway seeds. Mix. Add milk.

Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

Note: This bread is good; I enjoy it toasted in the toaster oven and it is very palatable without adding any spread or jelly.
