Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread

Food memories play such a unique role in our eating experiences and food personalities. The first time I was introduced to Irish soda bread was through my great aunt. She took me to a bakery in New Jersey where you walk through the inner workings of the bakery and grab hot, fresh loaves directly off the bakery racks, fill up a paper bag with fresh bread, take it to the counter where they slice it to your preferred thickness and individually bag the loaves.

Directions

Serving Suggestion

  • You can use any combination of flours here. I used 1 cup 100% whole wheat flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour. To make it all whole grain, I would suggest using a whole wheat pastry flour to give it a nice light crumb.

Variation

  • If you want to make this South Beach or low glycemic friendly, substitute this for Splenda or agave nectar.
