Mediterranean Style Soda Bread

Soda BreadThis Soda Bread is week 11 of my New Year’s Resolution for 2013 to cook at least one new thing every week, for the year.

 I really wanted to make a traditional soda bread this year for St Patrick’s Day but I’ve been super busy and left shopping to the last-minute and there I hit a disaster as my local supermarket didn’t have any butter milk!

Never one to give up I decided to shake up the traditional soda bread recipe and make a mediterranean soda bread, using ordinary milk rather than buttermilk and the addition of olives, cheese and sun-dried tomatoes.

I’m delighted to say that it turned out really well and was delicious straight from the oven with melted butter. It’s a recipe that would work really well for summer picnics and lunch boxes too as an alternative to boring sandwiches.

  3. Add the milk and mix to a dough.
  4. Form the dough into a ball and place on a baking tray lined with grease-proof paper.
  5.  Slightly flatten the ball, sprinkle with flour and cut into it  deeply to form quarters, but not all the way through.
  6. Bake in the oven for 30 mins or until golden and cooked through. It should sound slightly hollow when tapped.
