In honor of St. Patrick’s day
We decided to be festive and make Irish soda bread in honor of St. Patrick’s day.
We found the original Grandma’s Old fashioned recipe and decided to make a few different options.
Irish Soda Bread is a traditional Irish food that has been around since the 1830s. It is a simple bread made with soft wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and soured milk. Due to Ireland’s financial strife and lack of ingredients, it was created out of necessity and could be cooked in iron pots or on griddles over open hearths. It is commonly eaten around Saint Patrick’s Day and is known for its dense texture, hard crust, and slight sourness.
It is made with soft wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and soured milk, and is most commonly eaten around Saint Patrick’s Day. It is known for its dense texture, hard crust, and slight sourness, and is a symbol of celebration for many. The unique texture is the result of a reaction between the acid and baking soda, and sour milk or buttermilk is traditionally used. It is marked with a cross on the top for superstitious reasons, and the shape varies by region.
We made typical and gluten free soda bread in honor of St. Patrick’s day . It was a bit dry but in the end it was pretty good.
