Recipe by Rita1652
READY IN: 1hr 5mins
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pump up dried fruit:
  • Place raisins and cranberries in a glass bowl 1/4 cup pour water or whiskey (gives it a real Irish kick) over it.
  • Cover with plastic wrap or paper towel and microwave it for 1 minute. Let sit to cool.
  • Add salt, baking powder, sugar, and flour to food processor and pulse 3 times to sift.
  • Add the buttermilk, butter and eggs and mix till it comes to a doughy ball.
  • Mix in seeds and drained raisins, and cranberries. You may need to do this step by hand.
  • Don`t worry if you can knead the dough into a ball it still will be very good. At times my dough is moist because of moisture in the air.
  • Place the dough into a well buttered pan using hands well floured shaping the dough.
  • (I like cast iron skillet 8-9 inches). Pat down in center for even baking.
  • Mark a cross on top and brush with more melted butter.
  • Bake in 350 Degree oven for 50-60 minutes.
