I had Irish Brown Soda Bread at an Irish restaurant in Cincinnati and thought it was delicious. I think that they may have sweetened their bread slightly but I prefer not to have my bread sweetened. I have nothing else to compare this recipe to and assume by the comments from Andrea and another reviewer that this is quite authentic. My husband and I both enjoyed this bread quite well and I plan on making it again and again. I served it with whipped sweet butter and a dinner salad.
This bread was so easy to make & tasted great with the Irish stew we had on St Patrick's Day - I used the instant oats & my second batch turned out better because I flattened out the loaves more - they really rise a lot so need to start out at about one inch thick.
At first I thought the dough was too gooey but I stuck with the recipe and the bread turned out great! My 5-year-old son gobbled up 3 pieces fresh out of the oven. And he's a very picky eater. It was even better the next day. This bread is not for people who like a light fluffy bread. Our family has an Irish background so this is just what we were looking for. Great with soup and salad.
Sorry but there are better recipes for irish brown soda bread. This is OK but needs a bit more flavor. Suggest the following: add 1 tsp. baking powderl 3 ozs. butter (not margarine or shortening) and a tablespoon or so of brown sugar. I think you will find it more interesting. I come from Ireland and have made many many types of this bread.
