Introduction

Various forms of soda bread are popular throughout Ireland. Soda breads are made using wholemeal, white flour, or both.

Ingredients

  • 175g plain flour
  • 350g brown coarse flour
  • 4 teaspoon oat
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 250g buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoon molasses
  • 1/2 glass water

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).

Mix the flour, oat, bread soda and salt together in a bowl.  Combine the molasses,  dissolved in a warm glass of water with the buttermilk and  then mix into the flour. Use a wooden spoon and mix well, add a little more buttermilk if the mixture is dry – it should be a soft dough.  Then pour the lot into a lightly oiled loaf tin.

Bake for 45-50 minutes.
