I love St Patric’s Day and I always have people over to celebrate a traditional Irish meal.  This is the best soda bread I have made so far.  Its almost like a cake with all the raisins in.  It goes so well with the salty corned beef!

1/2 cup sugar
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups raisins
1 Tablespoons caraway seeds, optional
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare 9′ springform pan with vegetable spray. Mix first seven ingredients. In a second bowl mix eggs, buttermilk and sour cream. Add liquid ingredients to dry, adding enough until flour is moistened. Knead 10-12 strokes. The dough will be very sticky. Place in the springform pan. Cut a 4″ X in the top. Brush top with milk. Bake for 65-75 minutes.
