Bread for Breakfast

10 Nov

When I bake bread I always make brown bread, probably because that’s what my lovely mother always makes so I decided I’d try some lovely soda bread from Rachel Allen‘s ‘Bake’. I looked up a few recipes and the only main difference I came across was some put the bread in a hot hot oven first and then reduce the heat after five minutes.

Soda Bread Cooling

It’s a very simple bread to make; you sieve together the dry ingrediants, make a well and gradually add in the milk with your hand in the shape of a claw. There is no need to knead (hee hee!) this bread. You remove it from the bowl and gently shape on a floured service. Make a cross on it with a sharp knife and place in a preheated oven 200 degrees celcius and back for 30 minutes.

We enjoyed this for our breakfast with some blueberry jam. Great start to the day!
