Irish Brown Soda Bread
Happy Healthy Holidays!
This authentic Irish recipe contains currants or caraway seeds and is the simplest recipe ever. Because it must only be handled very lightly, it cannot be made in a bread machine.
4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup bread flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2-1/2 cups buttermilk
Preheat oven to 425-degrees. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
In a large bowl, stir together whole wheat flour, white flour, rolled oats, baking soda and salt. Gently mix in the buttermilk until a soft dough is formed. Knead very lightly. Divide dough into 4 pieces; form into rounded flat loaves. Mark each loaf with an 'X' and place on prepared baking sheets.
Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 30 to 45 minutes.
