Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 

Prepare pans.  You can use a 5X9 loaf pan or an 8″ round cake pan.  Spray each with cooking spray, or, coat all sides with a thin layer of shortening and dust with flour.  Set aside.

Beat eggs and buttermilk until blended.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together.  Stir in raisins.

Slowly add the eggs and milk mixture to the dry ingredients.  Stir until a sticky, thick dough forms.  You may also choose to mix the dough in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, or with a hand mixer. 

When dough is well blended, place in baking pan (either round pan or loaf pan, whichever you prefer). 

Sprinkle a light dusting of flour on top.  You may also add a few raisins on top if you prefer.

Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour if using loaf pan or 50 minutes if using an 8″ round pan.

When finished, cool completely before serving.

Notes and Suggestions

Try toasting individual pieces before eating!  For a truly authentic taste, use Irish butter when serving.  You can find Irish butter in the dairy case of many grocery stores.
