Irish Soda Bread

Joined Jan 1, 2001
In the spirit of March snow storms and St. Paddy's Day I made some Irish soda bread today and used the recipe from the latest Savuer magazine (march 2001). I replaced 1 cup of AP flour with whole wheat and used golden raisins. Wow!
It is great!
I'd like to know if anyone else has tried this or another really super recipe for this classic.

For 6 loaves:
3 kg Whole grain wheat flour
25 gr.Salt
25 gr.Bicarbonate of soda
3L Buttermilk

Got the recipe from my Culinaria book. I'm using it for my St-Patty's luncheon for my school project. I have to be honest though, I haven't tried the recipe myself. :D I think it's pretty authentic though..

I do these Irish Soda Bread Cookies every St. Pat's and they go over pretty well--

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup currants
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon caraway seed

Makes approx 3 dozen. Oven 350 degrees.

Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in currants.

Mix in beaten egg. Pour in milk and mix with a fork to make a soft dough (may need a little more milk).

On a floured surface, shape dough into a ball and knead lightly 5 or 6 times. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut into squares and triangles with a knife (approximately 2 inches in diameter).

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until slightly browned.
