Oatmeal Soda Bread

soda bread

Admittedly, soda bread is not a favorite of mine. But the recipe I found on Simply Recipes included ground rolled oats, which gave it a chewy texture and nutty flavor that was a nice change. Maybe next time I’ll add some currants.

2 cups old fashioned rolled oats, finely ground in a food processor
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 450°F

In a large bowl, whisk together the ground oats, flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt

Stir the buttermilk and egg together

Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk egg mixture
gently fold flour over the buttermilk until just combined
the dough should look like a shaggy mess

It should be on the moist side. (If it is too wet to handle, add a little more flour. If too dry, add a little more buttermilk.)

Knead dough one or two times only on a floured surface
form into a mound shape
score the top of the dough with 1 1/2 inch deep cuts, forming a cross, using a sharp knife

Place dough in a greased cast iron pan, or on a greased cookie sheet
bake for 15 minutes at 450°F
then lower the oven temperature to 400°F and cook for 25 minutes more
the loaf should sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom

Let the loaf rest in or on the pan for 10 minutes, then cool a few minutes before attempting to slice the loaf.
