Cathy O'Brien's Irish Soda Bread

This is a recipe from mother procured from a family friend a long time ago and that I make quite often. Luis loves raisin toast in the morning for breakfast and this makes two loaves so it lasts a couple of weeks.

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

Sift together:
6 cups flour
3 TBLS baking powder
2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1-2 cups raisins
Mix together and add:
1 egg
2 TBLS oil or melted butter
2 cups milk

Grease and flour two bread pans. Separate dough as equally as possible and bake until tops are brown. Test doneness by tapping the bottom of the loaf for a "hollow" sound.

* This recipe is a good way to use milk that might be a bit sour.
