Irish Soda Bread
- Active Time 15m
- Total Time 50m
1 small loaf, 8 slices
Fragrant homemade whole-wheat bread that is ready in less than 1 hour. The recipe is easily doubled.
- 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup currants
- 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
- 3/4 cup buttermilk, plus additional for brushing
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a pie pan with cooking spray.
Whisk the whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the currants and caraway seeds. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Gradually pour in the buttermilk, stirring with a fork until just combined. (Do not overmix).
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead several times. Form into a ball, flatten slightly and place in the prepared pie pan. Brush the top with buttermilk and dust with flour. With a sharp knife, cut a 1/2-inch-deep X into the top of the loaf.
Bake the loaf until it is brown on top and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom, 30-40 minutes. Let cool slightly before slicing.
