|Irish Soda Bread|
Traditional-style quick bread, made with whole spelt flour [or kamut flour for type O non-secretors].
How to make it:
- 3/4 cup soy milk [or other BTD compliant milk]
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 2 cups whole spelt flour [or other BTD compliant flour]
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder [Baking Powder Recipe Variations]
- butter [or ghee] (to grease pan)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Heat milk until just warm (about 30 seconds in the microwave).
- Add lemon juice.
- Set aside to 'clabber' while preparing remaining ingredients.
- Grease a baking sheet or pan.
- In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
- Add the milk. The dough should be soft but not too sticky (add a little flour or water if necessary). Knead the dough gently for about 1 minute.
- Shape the dough into a round loaf, place it on the pan, and slash the top a couple of times with a knife.
- Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the loaf is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.
- Let cool before eating.
- Best within a day or two.
- Excellent with butter and jam, or a hearty soup.
- Can be frozen.
