Irish Soda Bread II – Whole Wheat

I stumbled upon this recipe a few months ago on Etsy. Supposedly the famed artist Georgia O’Keeffe made this type of bread every single day. She must have been eating a lot of bread. This version looked a lot simpler. Yet when making it I found it wasn’t. For one thing: I don’t think using Greek Yoghurt was a good idea. It’s healthier than buttermild for sure. But I had to add tons of milk just to get my dough to stick together. Now my two little loaves are in the oven baking and I’m wondering what the results will be. Got 25 minutes left  on the clock…

  •  4 cups of whole wheat flour
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup yoghurt

Just as in last week’s recipe you are supposed to mix all the dry ingredients together. Since there is no butter involved it’s even easier.

Then mix in the wet ingredients stirring them in gradually to form dough. Next time around I will try with regular yoghurt.

Make two flattened loaves. Slash them on top and bake your little cute loaves in two oiled pie pans at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes.

This is what they looked like when I put them in the oven just now:
