      I have made this recipe for the past 3 years for St. Patty's Day. Everyone in my family and at the office loves it! I always bake it in two loaf pans. The only alterations to the recipe that I make are the following: I sour skim milk with vinegar instead of purchasing buttermilk (1T vinegar to make one cup) and I mix the raisins in the batter after the soured milk and egg, otherwise the raisins will bake with a dry flour coating because they are wet from soaking in hot water. I might need to make a second batch before the end of the week!
