How to Make An Irish brown soda bread


  1. sieve the plain flour, salt, and bread soda into a bowl. Mix in the wholemeal and wheatgrem. Add enough buttermilk to make a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface .Knead until the mixture comes together smoothly.
    Place the dough on a floured baking sheet.
    Cut a cross over the top.
  2. Place in the centre oven position and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200c for 40 minutes approximately.
    When bake the bread will have a hallow sound if trapped on the base.
    cool on a wire tray with a clean dry tea towel wrapped around the bread at this stage to give a softer crust.
  3. NOTE= You can use cow's milk if wish, but may produce a lighter crust colour when baked, that's alright. hope you all like and enjoy...:)
