Soda bread is back

My favourite morning has to have a turned on oven. Breakfast with fresh, still warm bread that filles the house up with comforting smell has such a positive effect. Simple 10 minutes recipe guaranties quick process and a quick delicious (and healthy) result.

You’ll need:

  • 500 g light Italian or plain flour, plus extra for dusting (mines are made with 250 g wholemeal spelt, some spelt germ & 250 g rye flour)
  • 1 heaped tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 heaped tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 100 g chilled unsalted butter, cubed (I used non dairy spread)
  • 1 cup of mixed seeds (pine kernels, sunflower, pumpkin, linseed)
  • 275 ml buttermilk or milk (I often use natural soya yoghurt)
  • 1 teaspoon black molasses

1. Preheat the oven to 220C/gas 7.

2. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar and salt into a large bowl. Using your fingertips, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

3. Add buttermilk or milk + molasses to the flour mixture and with a knife mix briefly to combine into a moist dough. Depending upon the absorbency of the flour, you may need to add a little milk if the dough seems too stiff but it should not be too wet. Place on a lightly floured work surface and knead ever so slightly to bring together, then press or roll out to a thickness of 3cm.

4. Using a 6cm round cutter, cut out approximately 12 scones and place on a floured baking tray. Or, like in my picture, simply form round buns, cut a cross on each top.
Bake in the oven for 10–12 minutes or until golden brown on top. Serve while hot.

Enjoy!

Mano megiamiausias rytas turi tureti ijungta orkaite. Pusryciai su zviezia, dar silta ir visus namus iskvepinusia duonute turi toki teigiama efekta… O paprastas 10 minuciu receptas garantuoja greita procesa ir greita (sveika) rezultata.

  • 1 a.s. su kaupu sodos
  • 2 a.s. su kaupu  cream of tartar
  • 1 a.s. druskos

3. I miltu/sviesto mase supilam kefyro ar pieno bei molases misini. Peiliu viska ismaisom iki lipnios teslos. Priklausomai nuo miltu, jum gali tekti panaudoti papildomai kefyro ar pieno jei tesla per kieta, bet ji neturetu gautis per skysta. Tesla kociokite ant miltais pabarstyto pavirsiaus mazdaug 3cm sluoksniu.

4. Iskociota tesla isspauskite apvaliomis formelemis arba kaip mano nuotraukose, paprasciausiai rankomis suformuokit bandeles, o kiekvienos pavirsiuje ipjaukite po kryziu.
Kepama apie 10-12 min. arba kol graziai paruduoja. Patiekiamos siltos.

Skanaus!
