Irish Soda Bread

4 c. Flour
4 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
4 tbsp butter, softened
1 1/2 c. milk
1 egg
1/4 c. whipping cream
1 c. raisins (or currants)

optional: 1 tbsp. melted butter + brown sugar for topping

Preheat oven to 375. 
Add softened butter to flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Incorporate through the dough.
Mix milk and egg, and slowly add to the batter.
Fold in whipping cream.
Add raisins (or currants) and incorporate slowly throughout.

Mix dough. It will be wet.  Knead on a floured surface until the dough holds together nicely.  Make an X or a snowflake with a serrated knife. Using a plastic baggie, pipe the butter and brown sugar mixture into the X or snowflake shape on top of the bread.

Bake for 40 min.
