Irish Wheaten Bread

Irish Wheaten Bread


St Patrick's Day and we're longing for some of the Irish fare we don't get too often living in California. Like nearly all the recipes on this blog this is a very easy recipe to execute - no fancy equipment required, very flavorful and definitely bound to impress your friends. We like to serve it with lashings of Irish butter and some smoked salmon but it also pairs well with a hearty soup. 

3 1/4 cups Whole Wheat Flour, sifted
2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Soda
2 tbsp Butter cut into small pieces, plus more for buttering loaf tin
2 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Oatmeal
2 1/2 cups Buttermilk

Preheat oven to 400F/200C

Place sifted flour in bowl with salt and baking soda. Rub in butter until your dry ingredient mixture is like bread-crumbs (this can be done in a Cuisinart by pulsing on and off for a minute or so). Add Oatmeal, mix well and then add buttermilk half a cup at a time. Place in a buttered 1lb loaf tin. Bake for 45 mins. Remove bread from tin and return to oven to bake for an additional 10 mins - this will crisp up the crust.

Serve with lashings of Irish Butter. This bread is traditionally served with smoked salmon at least that's how we have it.
