Homemade Irish brown soda bread recipe
Who can say no to a slice of Irish soda bread. Dunked into a bowl of hearty soup or slathered with some butter and raspberry jelly, there really is nothing quite like it.
Here’s a healthy and delicious recipe that’s sure to bring a smile to the faces around your table.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups low-fat buttermilk
- Preheat oven to 450F
- Combine the flours, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly. Make a well in the center of mixture. Add buttermilk to flour mixture; stir until blended (dough will be sticky). Turn dough out onto a generously floured surface. Knead lightly 4 to 5 times. Shape dough into an 8-inch round loaf; place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
- Bake at 450 for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 400 and continue to bake for another 15 minutes, or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped underneath. Cool on a wire rack. Simple and delicious!
Healthy tip: To reduce calories simply use low-fat buttermilk instead of full-fat buttermilk.
