Most soda bread recipes I've seen call for buttermilk so this one is a little different in its use of yogurt. It comes from Rosie Sykes, chef of the Sutton Arms restaurant in London.
- 350 g whole wheat flour
- 100 g white flour
- 50 g rolled oats
- 30 g soft brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 30 g butter, softened and cut into chunks
- 150 ml milk
- 200 g plain yogurt
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
- Place the dry ingredients in a bowl, then rub in the butter.
- Combine milk and yogurt, then pour into the bowl.
- Quickly bring the mix together, adding more milk if it's a little dry.
- Knead to distribute the baking soda evenly.
- Shape into a round loaf about 15cm across.
- Cut a deep cross on top, two-thirds of the way through the dough.
- Place on a buttered tray and bake for 45 minutes.
- Cool on a rack for 10-15 minutes.
Chose this recipe because of all of the ww flour and the oatmeal. Added some raisins. Really nice, virtuously healthy. I will certainly make it again! Tonight, St Patrick's Day, it will go with some lamb stew.
