Irish Soda Brown Bread (No Yeast) 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Baking is back and everyone wants a slice.
The truth is, though, that in some parts of the world, baking never went away. In some parts of the world, long walks end in buttered brown bread and huge mugs of tea. In some parts of the world, smoked salmon must be eaten with an oven-fresh loaf and a squeeze of lemon.
We happen to know where that part of the world is.
The Food Revolution sped through Ireland and its legacy is a tasty one. Foraging is a food trend favourite and Burren Lamb is gracing plates from Clare to Canberra. Galway and Louth oysters are making their way steadily up the list of most delicious delicacies, and cafés have embraced the cappuccino as a long lost beverage brother.
In short, Ireland is tasty.
But no matter how funky food gets or how innovative chefs become, a country should always save space for the classics.
In Ireland’s case, that classic is Soda Bread.
Baked is beautiful
“People are waking up to the smell of real bread again – I’m thrilled and delighted.”
“When you think about it – it’s a complex carbohydrate, it’s full of fibre, and it keeps you full for much longer than a slice of processed white bread would. It’s also seriously delicious.”




Ingredients:
• 250g (10oz) 2 1/2 wholemeal flour
• 220g (9oz) 2 1/4 cups white flour
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 tsp baking soda
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 280ml buttermilk
• 1 beaten egg


Directions:
Preheat the oven to 190°C / 375° F / Gas Mark 5

Sift together the flours, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
Add the buttermilk and beaten egg to the mix.
Knead on a floured surface until smooth. Add a little flour if needed until it can be worked into a wet non-sticky ball

Shape into a round and place on a baking tray.

Make a cross shape on top of the cake, blessing the food with love and place in the oven for 35-40 minutes.

Serve slightly warm with real butter...delicious.

Easy to make at home, but you can't beat real Irish soda bread. And there's only one place you'll get that. :O)

Wellness Tip
Size matters!
Don't forget about portion size when dining out. A 3.5 oz. hamburger made with extra lean ground beef, cooked to medium, contains about 250 calories, 16 grams of fat, 6 grams of saturated fat and 82 mg of cholesterol. Upgrade that to a half-pound of meat and you are looking at almost 600 calories, 36 grams of fat, 13 grams of saturated fat and 185 mg of cholesterol. What a whopping difference! Stick with smaller portions of meat. Three ounces is about the size of a deck of cards.

There’s No Such Thing as “Mostly Gluten Free
A comment made by a parent at our homeschool Christmas Party gave me the inspiration for this month’s topic. As I placed my plate of gluten free cookies on the snack table the mom next to me said “I didn’t know you were gluten free? We are mostly gluten free too.” Obviously she doesn’t understand what being gluten free really means...

Recipe
Tropical Lemon Cranberry Coconut Chia Bars
Category: Desserts
Description: Remember the early 90's and the ch-ch-ch chia pets? The popular decorative planters were, in fact, sprouted chia seeds. Chia (Salvia hispanica) is an ancient grain that was used as a staple food by early Mayans and Aztecs, who found benefit in its high energy production, easy transportation, and easy crop maintenance. It was also used within many medicinal applications. Today, Chia has been adopted by the public as a nutrient dense dietary "super food." These tiny seeds contain high concentrations of essential fatty acids, protein, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and can easily be incorporated into any diet for an extra boost of nutrition.
Chia typically contains 30-35% oils and is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6, with each tablespoon providing approximately 2.5-3 g of Omega 3.
Fiber content of 30-40% per serving, with a high ratio of soluble fiber. This type of fiber allows a slower conversionof carbohydrates to glucose, assisting with those suffering with sugar-related illness.
These essential fatty acids and high amounts of soluble fiber, make Chia very beneficial for cholesterol management and cardiovascular health.
Promotes bowel regularity, while soothing inflammatory bowel issues.
They are classified as a high protein food, offering a complete protein (amino acid) content higher than most other grains.
They contain a high antioxidant content, providing a mix of bioflavonoids and quercentin, with the average ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value per tablespoon being 960-1000.
