Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Last year, we shared an Irish Kitchen Prayer

This year, we wanted to share an Irish Blessing and, again, our family Irish soda bread recipe. We just made a batch last night!

May God Grant You Always

A Sunbeam To Warm You

A Moonbeam To Charm You

A Sheltering Angel So Nothing Can Harm You

Laughter to Cheer You

Faithful Family And Friends Near You

And Whenever You Pray, Heaven To Hear You


Brophy-Hilton’s Famous Irish Soda Bread

3 ½ cups flour

2/3 cup sugar

1 teas. salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teas. baking soda

2 cups raisins

2 tablespoons caraway seeds

2 eggs lightly beaten

1 ½ cups buttermilk

1 tablespoon melted butter


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Grease one loaf pan

Put all dry ingredients into a bowl

Toss and coat raisins with the dry mixture

Form mixture into mound-type shape and make a well in the center

Add remaining ingredients to the well and mix lightly

Do not over mix

Pour into pan and bake for one hour.

It is best to let the bread cool before slicing.

Some bakers believe that their day-old bread is tastier than right from the oven, especially toasted and buttered.


We hope your family is staying healthy and happy during this trying time. 


Dr. Hilton and support staff
