Soda Bread

Recipe by Sackville

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.

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.
