Irish Soda Brown Bread (No Yeast) 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Baking is back and everyone wants a slice.
The truth is, though, that in some parts of the world, baking never went away. In some parts of the world, long walks end in buttered brown bread and huge mugs of tea. In some parts of the world, smoked salmon must be eaten with an oven-fresh loaf and a squeeze of lemon.
We happen to know where that part of the world is.
The Food Revolution sped through Ireland and its legacy is a tasty one. Foraging is a food trend favourite and Burren Lamb is gracing plates from Clare to Canberra. Galway and Louth oysters are making their way steadily up the list of most delicious delicacies, and cafés have embraced the cappuccino as a long lost beverage brother.
In short, Ireland is tasty.
But no matter how funky food gets or how innovative chefs become, a country should always save space for the classics.
In Ireland’s case, that classic is Soda Bread.
Baked is beautiful
“People are waking up to the smell of real bread again – I’m thrilled and delighted.”
“When you think about it – it’s a complex carbohydrate, it’s full of fibre, and it keeps you full for much longer than a slice of processed white bread would. It’s also seriously delicious.”




Ingredients:
• 250g (10oz) 2 1/2 wholemeal flour
• 220g (9oz) 2 1/4 cups white flour
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 tsp baking soda
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 280ml buttermilk
• 1 beaten egg


Directions:
Preheat the oven to 190°C / 375° F / Gas Mark 5

Sift together the flours, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
Add the buttermilk and beaten egg to the mix.
Knead on a floured surface until smooth. Add a little flour if needed until it can be worked into a wet non-sticky ball

Shape into a round and place on a baking tray.

Make a cross shape on top of the cake, blessing the food with love and place in the oven for 35-40 minutes.

Serve slightly warm with real butter...delicious.

Easy to make at home, but you can't beat real Irish soda bread. And there's only one place you'll get that. :O)

Wellness Tip
Greens
Have you heard of arugula? It is a green, leafy vegetable that contains about 20 times more beta-carotene and vitamin C than iceberg lettuce. It also has 8 times more calcium. When making green salads at home, consider choosing dark green leaves, such as arugula, romaine, and chicory. Using these greens in salads and on sandwiches creates a more nutritious meal.

Matcha Green Tea Ice cream

Description: Here is a recipe for green tea ice cream that uses an ice cream maker. So delicious and refreshing! The health benefits of matcha tea exceed those of green tea because when you drink matcha you ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water. One glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content.
Amongst its many benefits, matcha... •Is packed with antioxidantsincluding the powerful EGCg •Boosts metabolism and burns calories •Detoxifies effectively and naturally •Calms and relaxes •Enhances mood and aids in concentration •Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium •Fights against viruses and bacteria •Is rich in fiber •Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar •Does not raise insulin levels
