Irish Soda bread that is quick and easy. The light rye flour gives it a flavour similar to the bread served at the Outback Steak House . Great accompaniment for soups and stews.
- 2 cups light rye flour or 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 2 cups buttermilk
- oatmeal (large flakes)
- Combine the flours, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and brown sugar in a large bowl.
- Mix the egg with the buttermilk and stir into the dry ingredients just to blend.
- Dust the counter with oatmeal flakes.
- Turn out dough and knead about 10 times to cover with flakes and form a round ball.
- Place on buttered cookie sheet, cut a cross lightly on top of loaf and bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes or until it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
- If you don't want to use rye flour, use whole wheat.
- It works just as well.
Thank You! Really good - this was the only Irish Soda Bread recipe I found on Recipzaar with both rye flour and oatmeal. Very easy as well. I will make this again!!
Thanks for a great recipe. We enjoyed it so much that I went out and bought more flour and plan to make this recipe instead of using store bought. I also had trouble kneading the dough as it was too sticky. I also added another cup of flour and even though it still seemed to moist I put it in the oven - and it turned out lovely. It's a keeper..
the best and easiest i have ever made. my hubby is fussy with his bread and this one is now made so i do not have to buy shop bread. great taste and texture.
