This is a simple bread to make, no effort at all and it tastes just great.
Whole Wheat Brown Sugar Soda Bread Preheat oven to 180oC/350oF.
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsps caraway seeds (optional)
6 Tbs unsalted butter, chilled and cut into pieces
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
Grease a baking sheet and set aside. Combine the flours, sugar, baking powder, salt, soda and caraway seeds in a food processor and pulse 2 times just to blend. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Pour in the buttermilk and pulse just to combine.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured board, knead 3 or 4 times and shape into a ball. Using a serrated knife, make an X on the top of the bread. Sprinkle with additional caraway seeds if desired. Place on the prepared sheet and bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before slicing.
I want to encourage youngsters (male or female) to get into the kitchen and enjoy cooking. TASTE it!
