  • Irish Soda Bread-Diane M.


    2-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    2 Tbs. sugar
    1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. salt
    4 Tbs. butter (room temperature)
    1 egg
    1-1/4 cups buttermilk (room temperature) if can tolerate
    Mix together all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Using your finger tips, work the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Beat the egg and buttermilk in a separate bowl, and gradually add to the flour mixture. Mix with a spoon at first, and then by hand or mixer when the dough becomes stiff. On a lightly floured work surface, work the dough to thoroughly blend all the ingredients. Do not knead. Sprinkle with flour if the dough should stick. Shape into a round ball and pat the top down slightly, and place on a greased or non-stick baking sheet. Cut a 1/2 in (1 cm) deep cross in the top using a sharp knife or razor blade. Bake in 400F (200C) oven for about 45 minutes, or until it has browned and the cuts have expanded. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack before slicing.
