Irish Soda Bread (As seen on Duggars World Tour: Scotland & Ireland)

by | Feb 1, 2015 | 0 comments

1 cup white flour (+ a little extra for sprinkling in pan and on top of bread)

3/4 or 1 cup wheat meal

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon soda

1 egg *

3/4 cup buttermilk (or 3/4 cup milk & 1 TBSP. white vinegar or lemon juice)

Preheat oven to 425. Mix dry ingredients with egg, then add 3/4 cup buttermilk (can add a little more if it dough is to dry and doesn’t “pull away from the sides” easily.) Mix with spoon. Sprinkle flour on top and sides of bread dough in bowl. Sprinkle flour in bottom of pan. Roll dough from bowl into pan. Use knuckles to gently push bread down. Using a serrated knife, score top of dough about an inch and a half deep in an “X” shape. The purpose of the scoring is to help heat get into the center of the dough while it cooks. Let rise 20 min. Bake in oven at 425 for about 20-25 min. Remove pan or sheet from oven, let bread sit in the pan or on the sheet for 5-10 minutes, then remove to a rack to cool briefly. Serve bread warm, at room temperature, or sliced and toasted. Best when eaten warm and just baked. Makes one little loaf.

*Can be made without an egg, but will have to be eaten in the same day.
