Brown Soda Bread

Rated as 2.8 out of 5 Stars

"This soda bread is healthy and tastes really good! The texture is moist and chewy, and it feels like an authentic Irish soda bread. Since buttermilk is not available in Japan, I used yogurt and mayonnaise instead."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly flour a 9x5 loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, bran, baking soda, and salt; cut in the butter with a pastry blender until the pea sized pieces form. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, milk, and mayonnaise. Stir the yogurt into the flour until just mixed. Pour into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden.

This bread is a little dry, but otherwise I found it somewhat confusing. Knowing authentic Irish Soda Bread and Irish Brown Bread---this is neither.
