Ger makes the best Brown Bread and I finally got the recipe (and promptly modified it to pair down the ingredient list and raise the percentage of whole wheat flour). I might try this with 100% ww flour next.


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Sift dry ingredients together.
  3. Add milk until slightly sticky.
  4. Mix minimally, just enough for a raggy texture. DON'T KNEAD!
  5. Shape into a circle, 2 inches tall, and place on floured cookie sheet.
  6. Cut deep cross into the top with a sharp, floured knife.
  7. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until a rap to the bottom sounds hollow.
  8. **note** technique is key with soda bread. This is one of those instances where YouTube is a better medium than a written recipe. I highly suggest you watch some video tutorials before attempting soda bread for the first time.
