Beautiful brown bread. This brown soda bread is easy to make, even at the last minute. Cut a nice thick slice off and slightly warm through and then thickly spread the butter on.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet with 1 teaspoon margarine.

  • Sift all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt together into a bowl; mix well. Add 2 tablespoons margarine and rub into flour mixture until crumbly. Pour milk over mixture and stir to form a soft, but not sticky dough.

  • Dust your hands with flour and bring dough together, shaping into a ball. Place ball onto the baking sheet and flatten slightly. Cut an "x" on the top to divide it into quarters.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden and risen, 20 to 25 minutes. The base should sound hollow when the loaf is lifted using a towel and you knock on it with your knuckles. Cool a wire rack.

3.2.17 I followed the recipe to the letter perhaps cutting a little too deeply into the top. It certainly is easy and quick with no rising time involved but it was a bit of a disappointment to me. Honestly I ve never had brown soda bread before and I m giving this recipe an additional star based solely on that but I simply wasn t crazy about either the taste or the texture. Wish I could give a better review and I don't want to discourage others from trying this recipe but doubtful I ll make this one again. Read More
