Easy Irish Soda bread

Recipe by Manda

Maybe not exactly traditional, but very easy and wonderful when toasted and spread with butter. This bread is baked in a loaf pan, and produces a very simple, dense bread loaded with raisins.

This was great!! I followed the recipe exactly, but I had to cook it a little longer as the inside was not done. So, I covered it in foil to prevent the top from burning, but otherwise it was excellent as written!!
