I found this recipe for Irish white soda bread while browsing food blogs. It is an Irish soda bread with no sugar, eggs, seeds, raisins, or anything else. I made it with Harvest King flour and powdered buttermilk. The result is a nice moist loaf with a yellowish tinge from the flour. The flavor is nice, very plain, but more flavorful unlike a biscuit. Mrs. A and I had it for breakfast this morning with butter and blueberry jam. I toasted some for a peanut butter sandwich snack this afternoon. Even better. The original recipe is at http://www.valskitchen.com/ under Soda Far Soda Good.
Here is the recipe I used:
400g plain flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp bread soda
300ml buttermilk. I used 5 tablespoons of dry buttermilk and 300 ml of water.
Mix the flour, salt and bread soda together in a large mixing bowl.
Add in the buttermilk and mix completely. Use your hand in a claw-like shape to bind the ingredients, you can use a dough hook. I did.
Take out of the bowl and put onto a floured work surface and knead into a circular loaf shape.
Cut a deep cross into the bread, this allows it to expand, and bake at 170 degrees C (350 degrees F) for one hour. I baked it at 350 in the convection oven with a cold start for 40 minutes.
Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool.
