Soda bread

This yummy soda bread is based on a recipe by Lorraine Pascale, but I have adapted it in the Thermomix. Soda bread is probably the easiest bread for a novice baker or those who (wrongly) 'fear' the whole yeasted bread process.

You'll need

  • 370g/13oz plain/all purpose flour
  • 120g/4oz wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda/baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 50g/2oz unsalted melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon black treacle – this isn't always easy to find in US, but I guess molasses would work
  • 340ml buttermilk (organic flour and wholemeal flours require more liquid so add 300ml and add more if mixture still too dry)

Tip all the ingredients into the TM bowl and mix speed 4 for 10 seconds. Mix on dough setting for a minute until well combined.

The traditional preparation of soda bread for the oven is to make a disc and make indentations with the handle of a wooden spoon, as shown.

Pop into a preheated oven 200°C/400°F for a about 35 minutes.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
