"This is a delicious brown bread closest to what we ate while in Ireland. It isn't Irish soda bread, which has a completely different taste and texture. We LOVE this recipe!"
Method for Irish Brown Bread
- 1Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- 2Lightly grease a baking sheet.
- 3Mix all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
- 4Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture forms fine crumbs.
- 5Stir whole-wheat flour and quick-cooking oatmeal into the butter mixture.
- 6Gently stir yogurt into the oatmeal mixture. If mixture is too dry to hold together, add 1 teaspoon milk at a time, just until dough holds together; it should not be sticky.
- 7Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface; knead gently about 5 times to form a ball.
- 8Place the dough in the center of the prepared baking sheet; cut a large 'X' in the top of the loaf.
- 9Bake in preheated oven until well browned, about 40 minutes; transfer to a rack to cool. Bread can be served warm or cold.
