This was very good with butter and honey. I wouldn't leave out the caraway seed, because I think it's what made me really enjoy this recipe. Thanks for posting!
Very tasty (I love caraway seeds). We served it with lots of honey. Mine was shaped funny, though, not like in the picture shown. I don't know enough about making bread to know what I did wrong.
This was really good. I made it in a very heavy stainless steel skillet, as I don't have a cast iron one, but it worked like a charm. I wasn't sure what to expect with the bread, but it came out resembling a very good beer bread, without the beer. :) It was dense, but not heavy, and all of the butter got soaked up as it cooled - yum! Thank you for sharing.
TERRIFIC! I LOVE barley flour...so was very happy to discover this recipe. I made it as directed but in my 10" cast iron skillet so only baked it for 40 minutes. I did use the caraway seed. It has a lovely heavy texture kinda cookieish. I thought it was great on its own and with butter and honey. YUM! Made for the ZWT4- Jefes.
This was good & very filling! A nice easy recipe. I used 2TB of the melted butter instead of oil & had plenty to coat the pan & pour on top. I omitted the caraway (can't stand the stuff). I also needed to add more buttermilk & wonder if it got overmixed & would have been lighter otherwise? Everyone enjoyed this & it will be finished for breakfast! Made for EE Breads, ZWT4.
An easy and tasty bread for breakfast or dinner. The texture is light, but has a nice whole grain taste, with a crunchy, buttery crust. I omitted the caraway seeds. For me, the batter consistency was perfect as written. (Perhaps there are different grinds of barley flour?) I would use only 3 tbl of butter next time; I had excess for oiling the pan and flavoring the top.
I followed the previous 2 reviewers with recipe & added a bit more buttermilk, but then I ended up having to add a little more flour to bring it back in line with what I thought it sould be! Loved the addition of caraway seeds & the bread is very tasty! Certainly something I'd by happy to make again! [Made & reviewed while on tour in Eastern Europe with Zaar's World Tour 4]
I made this bread for ZWT 4. I did leave out the seeds because I didn't have any but it was good anyways. Oh, I forgot... I also had to add a little more buttermilk to the batter.
This is good! I made one small substitution, in that I could not find caraway seeds anywhere, so I used some fennel seeds I had in the spice rack. I recommend it with the seeds! They added a nice little bite. I had mine with butter and honey, and it was such a treat. I think it would make a great breakfast. Only one little tiny suggestion for future cooks with this recipe; I had to add a little more buttermilk than the recipe called for to get the dough spreadable. Otherwise, it's perfect.
