Sullivan's Soda Bread
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 50-60 minutes
Yield: One large loaf
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup raisins
1) Preheat the grill to 350 degrees, spreading the charcoal in a ring, leaving an indirect heat zone in the middle of the grill. Grease the GBS griddle or a 9- to 10- inch cast-iron skillet or a large baking sheet.
2) Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl; make a well in the center. In a smaller bowl, combine butter, buttermilk and egg. Add the liquids to the dry ingredients, pouring it into the well and stirring to form a soft dough. Add raisins and mix lightly.
3) Transfer batter to the griddle, and with lightly floured hands, shape it into a ball. Slash an ‘X’ across the top.
4) Carefully place the griddle in the center of the grill over the indireact heat zone. Close the lid and bake until set, 50-60 minutes.
