Description

Irish Whole Wheat Soda BreadThis is great sliced thin and served with almost any kind of cheese, especially farmhouse cheese and local ale!

I made this one with King Arthur Irish-style flour and NH buttermilk, but the supermarket stuff makes good bread too - this is an excellent recipe.

Ingredients

3cWhole Wheat Flour (I use King Arthur Irish flour)
1cwhite flour
1 1⁄2cButtermilk (I got it from Brookford Farm, NH)
1Tkosher salt
1tBaking Soda
3⁄4tBaking Powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Combine dry ingredients.
  2. Add buttermilk as needed to make a smooth dough. Work smooth, but do not overhandle.
  3. Form into a round loaf and cut a cross in the top. Brush with more buttermilk if you like.
  4. Bake on a greased sheet for 35 minutes, or until done. Let cool before serving.
