soda bread. {vegetarian}

5 December 2011

Soda breads are popular in many countries as a type of quick bread. This is version of an Irish soda bread. It is "wicked" easy & can be eaten with breakfast, with soup, with a salad, a stew, or on it's own with some butter. I made two of these for a St. Patrick's Day get together this year & they were a huge hit. When I made this one, we ate the whole loaf in one day.

soda bread.
makes 1 loaf

2 cups spelt flour or all purpose
1/4 cup organic sugar
1/2 baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
  1. Sift together in a bowl.
1 cup buttermilk (if you live in New England Kate's makes a great one)
1/2 cup organic raisins, chopped
  1. Mix in slowly. Be careful not to over mix.
  2. Form dough into a round & cut a cross a 1/2" deep across the top.
  3. Lightly grease & flour a baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees & bake for about 25-30 minutes.
  4. You can test it by sticking a wooden skewer or a knife in the center & if it comes out clean, you're golden!
happy eatings & cheers!
