From: Norman Danner <ndanner@...> Date: 23 Feb 1994 15:18:09 -0500 My stepmom's Irish Soda bread recipe (quickbread): Mix together 3 cups of flour (my stepmom uses half white and half whole wheat, I use all whole wheat), ½ c. bran, ½ c. wheat germ, and one heaping teaspoon baking soda. Cut in 1-2 tablespoons of butter. Pour in about 2 cups of buttermilk and knead into a dough (add in more flour as necessary). Shape the dough into whatever you plan to bake the bread in (I use a heavy cast-iron pan, and so shape it into roughly a circular shape).
Put a couple of cuts in the top so that the crust doesn't crack when it is baking, and bake for about 50 minutes at 425 F. All the measurements are approximate--my stepmom & I cook according to the "put in enough and cook until done" school. The entire process (except baking, but including clean-up) takes about 20 minutes.
My dad & I have been known to eat two loaves of this stuff in a sitting, just as soon as they're cool enough to eat! REC.FOOD.RECIPES
