Super easy brown soda bread

Brown soda bread is just one of those things that is a must on any irish families kitchen table. It only has a hand full of ingredients all of which are good for you, low in fat + full of yumminess.

In a past blog I have shared a brown soda bread with you all but this new one is even easier for you to make + most importantly is fool proof, perfect for any novice out there.It takes no time at all to prepare + you'll be eating this bad boy with in the hour.

For this recipe you will need:
2 cups of white flour
2 cups of 100% wholewheat flour
1 cup of jumbo oats
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 pint of buttermilk

Firstly pre heat your oven @200'

Start by adding all the dry ingredients in a bowl and combine together well. Next pour in most of your buttermilk + mix well, once its almost combined pour in the last of buttermilk. Don't forget to scrape the bottom of the bowl you'll always have a few scragglers left behind.

Next on your counter top sprinkle some wholemeal flour out, then flour your hands + plonk out the bread mixture. Here you are going to spend a few minutes kneading the brown bread, adding wholemeal flour to the countertop + hands as needed. There is no doubt that you will need to scrape some dough off your hands and the countertop so don't let this fluster you. In the end you want the finish product to be even + oval in shape.

Dust your baking tray with wholewheat flour place the dough on it, then with a knife cut a cross on the top of the dough this allows the bread to expand. Sprinkle some those jumbo oats over the top before you pop it in the oven for 40 mins.

3/4 way through the baking time i like to turn the brown bread around so as to give an even browning. Once your timer beeps open the over turn the bread upside down + give the underneath a wee tap it should sound hollow... bobs your uncle your brown bread is baked...

this brown bread is perfect for freezing thats if you have the discipline not to eat it all
