Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread

With whole wheat and honey

Posted on March 14, 2017
Irish Soda Bread is a recipe that is so much easier than expected. I even did it wrong and this recipe STILL came out beautifully enough for me to bake another batch (or two). Hot from the grill, off your Napoleon Pizza Stone, there is nothing better. Serve your fresh Irish Soda Bread with butter, homemade jam, or use it to soak up the juices from delicious Dublin Coddle or Irish Beef Stew; definitely, the best way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. 

I know you’re wondering how I could have messed this recipe up. Well, I grabbed greek yogurt when shopping for this recipe. Yogurt is yogurt, right? Nope! Greek yogurt has a thick texture, while regular yogurt is a lot more liquid. So, while mixing the wet and dry ingredients, I wound up with some sort of shaggy, flour covered, yogurt ball type mixture. I had to mix the dough together with my hands! I was worried. They said not to knead this dough more than 20 times. Well, I gently mixed with my hands until I had a sticky ball of dough, then kneaded on a floured surface about 10 times until the dough came together fully. When I removed my beautiful, steaming-hot bread from the pizza stone, let it cool enough to slice, and bit into that first slice was heavenly, and the recipe is surprisingly forgiving.
