Wow, Irish Soda bread reminds me of home. It sure looks good, well done. There's also a white soda bread. My mother used to make both and something in between with a mix of white and brown flour.

Did you use buttermilk? If you can't get buttermilk, sour milk (not too far gone) is a good substitute.

Boxty, where I came from, was a potato bread, usually baked and sometines reheated in a frying pan, it was fantastic. Again my mother used to make all sorts of potato cakes which bring back the best of memories.

Could you send me your recipe for the Irish soda bread? Or post it hear?

Recipe:

3cup bread flour or all purpose flour

3cup whole wheat flour

2ts baking soda

1tb baking powder

2tb brown sugar

2 1/4 cup buttermilk (can use sour cream or plain yoghurt)

Mix all ingredients and bake about 45 minutes

I too will try this simple recipe. Just want to check, by ts, do you mean teaspoons? and tb, is that tablespooons?

At what temperature? thx

with the simple ovens round here things are either full blast or off...you must experiment. either that or have thaigerd suggest something suitable...

the general question being, how to modulate oven temps for baking when oven temps are not controllable???

My mother would have called the brown bread, wheaten bread.

I love soda bread warm or toasted with lots of Kerrygold butter on it.

:o

Oh yes, Kerrygold is the only butter allowed in my house!
