A question about a recipe: Peggy's Authentic Irish Soda Bread with Raisins

I have a question about the recipe "Peggy's Authentic Irish Soda Bread with Raisins" from Pegeen. I like the taste of caraway in irish soda bread. How much would I add for a loaf this size?

I too love caraway and would start with 3 Tbsp then adjust after the first go

Hi Karen, it's Pegeen, who posted the recipe. For this recipe, if using both raisins and caraway in the same loaf, I'd reduce the raisins to 1 cup or 2/3 cup, and use 1 Tablespoon of caraway seed or less (depending on how much you like caraway). I love this question because it reminded me of my grandmother's answer and so telling of the modesty of the time: you can wear sequins or patent leather, but not both.

I usually add between 2 and 3 tablespoons caraway seeds to my soda bread recipe, which uses 5 cups flour. This one has a bit less flour,so why not start with 2 tablespoons and see how you like it. The raisins and caraway seeds are so great together! You'll have a great loaf.
