If you know my last name, you know I’m very IRISH! [More so by marriage than by blood…but regardless, Irish!]. Green beer this evening will ensue. Guaranteed. 😉
With a warm front (ahhh…60’s) hitting Tulsa, stew seemed… not quite right. But there’s ALWAYS room for whole grain carbs in this Irish heart (and tummy)!
Brown Soda Bread from Cooking Light
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup steel-cut oats
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp wheat germ
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 325º F.
Coat a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with parchment paper, and coat with cooking spray.
Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flours and next 6 ingredients (through salt). Combine buttermilk and egg; add to flour mixture. Stir until just combined.
Spoon mixture into prepared pan. Bake at 325º F for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Invert brad onto a wire rack; cool completely. Remove parchment; slice bread into 12 slices. Yield: 12 servings.
