Abe Stark's Irish Soda Bread:

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup cold butter cut into chunks

1 1/4 cups buttermilk

How to make

STEP 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Grease the baking sheet with butter, then lightly dust flour evenly over the butter, remove any remaining flour and set aside.

STEP 2 Combine all ingredients except buttermilk and raisins in bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk and raisins just until moistened.

STEP 3 Turn dough onto floured surface; knead gently 10 times. Shape into ball. Place onto prepared baking sheet. Pat into 6-inch circle. Cut 1/2 inch deep “X” in top of dough with sharp knife.

STEP 4 Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack and place a lightly damp tea towel over it.

How to Use Zoom

Please Wear a Mask if You Go Out

People who do not show symptoms may still be able to spread COVID-19, and therefore the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) recommends you wear a face covering or mask whenever you leave home. A face covering will not protect you from infection, but it can help others. A face covering can include anything that covers your nose and mouth, including dust masks, scarves and bandanas. Do not use health care worker masks, as those must be preserved for people in the health care system. Even if you have a face covering, continue to stay home as much as possible and avoid close contact with other people. Please visit nyc.gov/coronavirus for more information and an FAQ on face coverings, as well as other important information on the virus.
