Irish Soda Bread
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour plus more for shaping
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup raisins plumped in hot water
  • 1 egg
  • cups buttermilk
Servings: slices
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously butter a cookie pan or 10-inch cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, salt and sugar. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut in the butter until well incorporated. (A food processor works well for this also). Stir in the sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and raisins. In a 2 cup measure, whisk together the egg and buttermilk. Add to the dry ingredients and stir.
  3. Turn the mixture out onto a well-floured surface and sprinkle the top of the dough with flour. Using a dough scraper, shape the dough into a 10-inch circle and transfer to the baking pan. The dough will be very soft, and the loaf will look rustic. Mark the top with a cross-shaped indentation. Bake in the center of the oven until the bread is well browned and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom, 35 – 45 minutes. Let cool on a rack. To serve, cut into quarters and slice the quarters with a sharp bread knife. Yield: 16 or more slices
