Irish Soda Bread Recipe
Irish Soda Bread is a delicious recipe that goes back many, many years.
•1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour -- unbleached, enriched
•1 1/2 cups Whole wheat flour -- stone-ground
•1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
•1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
•1 1/4 cups Buttermilk
Set the baking rack in the center of the oven and place a baking stone (if available) on the rack. Preheat the oven to 375.
In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Mix to incorporate. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the buttermilk. Mix quickly to incorporate the milk evenly. It may be easier to mix with the hands than with a spoon. Form the dough into a loaf shape and place in a nonstick 8 1/2-x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2" loaf pan.
Place in the preheated oven and bake for 50-55 minutes, until well browned and a skewer inserted in the center comes out dry. Remove from the oven and the baking pan. Place on a wire rack to cool.
