Arid Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread

Traditional Irish soda bread, like this loaf from Liz the Chef, is a staple for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or for just generally filling up on delicious carbs.

Rosie of Make Stuff/Do Things says she usually has pretty good luck with baking bread – but this time she had a few minor issues.

I followed the recipe, but due to my lack of either buttermilk or yoghurt I made sour milk the old way (with vinegar). That part worked out fine, if you ignore the fact that warming the milk made some of it evaporate so then I had less then I needed. I had also neglected to take the dry winter air into account, as we’re still in the early days of it and our summers are so humid.

So when it became clear that something was off I decided that I didn’t want to wait to make more sour milk, and that I should just push forward. End result: something pretty dry and cracked!

    Is that a camera effect on the bread ?Golden color is it butter? egg ?

    For perfect soda bread, measure out the required amount of full fat milk, at room temperature. Then whisk in two spoons of plain unsweetened yoghurt. Do not heat the milk, and don’t add vinegar or lemon juice, or you will have bread that even the birds would reject!
