Wholegrain Brown Irish bread
After I moved to Ireland not only did I fall in love with it's people but also the food. The fish and chips, Irish breakfast, Guinness beer :P and of course the simple yet delicious bread.
We always bought from store but never realized that it is so easy to make. My aunt works in the hospital here in Dublin and one of her colleague a lovely Irish lady gave her this recipe. The very first time I baked my own Irish bread, I was so impressed, decided will never buy from the store again.
This recipe unlike the traditional Irish soda bread does not require buttermilk, instead it is baked using fresh milk and red wine vinegar, the taste is just like a store bought wholemeal Irish soda bread, even better since it is baked at home. If you do not have buttermilk at home then this recipe comes in super handy.
I hope you like it, let me know if you try this and please do remember to use my hashtag #soulfulandhealthy and share it with family and friends.
It only takes 5 mins and one bowl to make this bread, the only time consuming part is the baking, but for that just put the kettle on while it is baking and sit down and relax with a cup a tea. ;)
