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)

Recipe
Salsa Summer Fresca
Category: Dips
Description: Tomatoes are best in the summer months. Although tomatoes are now available year-round, the truly wonderful qualities of tomatoes are the best when they are in season from July through September.
In the area of food and phytonutrient research, nothing has been hotter in the last several years than studies on the lycopene in tomatoes. This carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells.
Prevention of heart disease, Colon Health, and in Prostate Health has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene.
Tomatoes have been shown to be helpful in reducing the risk of prostate cancer.
With fresh ingredients, salsa has the perfect combination of spicy and refreshing tastes. Paired with some chips or added to a wrap, salsa is a great, healthy snack.
