Yes, April is well upon us and I haven't posted the new Recipe of the Month (ROM) yet! I'm quickly reposting the March recipe and then saving it with the ROM tag, so you can always find it if you want (and really, you should want it - it's fab!) April's Asparagus will be next!
Aunty Val's Irish Soda Bread
This is one of my dear Aunty O'Valerie's stand-by recipes and has become one of mine, too - as have so many of her recipes. I offer it to you just in time for St. Patrick's Day!
2 c whole wheat flour
2 c white flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 c buttermilk
1-2 Tbsp sugar
1/4 c oil (canola)
Sift dry ingredients together. Mix in wet. Shape dough into an oval on a greased baking sheet (the dough will be sticky so use flour on your hands). Slightly score the top. Bake at 300 degrees F for 1 hour in the middle of the oven.
