This is a delicious brown bread closest to what we ate while in Ireland. It isn't Irish soda bread, which has a completely different taste and texture. We LOVE this recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ tablespoons butter

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour

  • ¼ cup quick-cooking oatmeal

  • 1 ½ cups nonfat plain yogurt

  • 1 teaspoon milk, or more as needed (Optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

  3. Mix all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.

  4. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture forms fine crumbs.

  5. Stir whole-wheat flour and quick-cooking oatmeal into the butter mixture.

  6. Gently stir yogurt into the oatmeal mixture. If mixture is too dry to hold together, add 1 teaspoon milk at a time, just until dough holds together; it should not be sticky.

  7. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface; knead gently about 5 times to form a ball.

  8. Place the dough in the center of the prepared baking sheet; cut a large 'X' in the top of the loaf.

  9. Bake in preheated oven until well browned, about 40 minutes; transfer to a rack to cool. Bread can be served warm or cold.
