Wild Garlic Irish Soda Bread

2018-10-09 ・ Source
200 g wholegrain flour
275 g strong white flour
350 ml buttermilk
1 generous teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1 large free-range egg
1 tsp honey
1 handful of wild garlic leaves, roughly chopped
A pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Grease and flour a 900g loaf tin. Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda, wild garlic and salt in a mixing bowl. In a Pyrex measuring jug, measure out the buttermilk and then whisk in the egg and honey.

Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, and then pour in the wet mixture. Add a little extra flour if you find the dough is too wet and sticky. Using a wooden spoon, bring the mix together to form a dough. Shape into a rough oval and place in the loaf tin.

Sprinkle with a little flour on top and bake in the oven for 35 minutes. The bread is cooked when you can turn it out on a wire rack, and when the bottom is tapped it should sound hollow. Allow to cool before slicing and enjoying with a little butter.
