Irish soda bread is definitely one of the easiest and quickest bread recipes you’ll find and it’s also super delicious! The best thing about it is that you can just add your favourite ingredients from savoury to sweet to get different variations. As it’s the season of wild garlic, we tried the recipe with a handful of this and the result turned out really tasty!
250g of wholegrain flour
250g strong white flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp honey
1 handful of wild garlic leaves, roughly chopped
A pinch of salt
Mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda, wild garlic and salt.
Meanwhile mix the butter milk, egg and honey.
Simply mix the wet ingredients with a wooden spoon or hands. Add extra flour if the mixture is too soft (like wise add more butter milk if the mixture is too dry).
Mix together to form a dough. Shape into a rough oval/ or long bread shape and place on a baking tray. Score with a knife.
Sprinkle with a little flour on top and bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes at 180 degrees.
Turn out the bread onto a cooling rack, tap the base. If it sounds hollow the bread is ready.
Allow to cool and enjoy with butter!
