We had a early dinner last night, and I felt a litte bored, so off to the kitchen we went to experiment. It had to be something we can do quick and fast, and still satisfy our “need to play in the kitchen” craving.
We decided on whipping up a batch of irish soda bread. It doesn’t take as long to make as traditional breads because it uses the reaction of buttermilk with baking soda to leaven instead of yeast which could take quite a while.
Even with this short cut, we still have tasty warm bread after to slap on a huge dollop of butter. Too easy! We made two loaves, and the prep work for both was done in less than 30 minutes.
It was an absolute success, and we decided that we will need to whip up another batch when we make New England Clam Chowder real soon. We might even throw some corn kernels.
