This weekend's weather was so utterly foul that we (me-n-the-dogs) were forced to stay indoors a lot, and do indoor things like painting the kitchen, clearing up mountains of dog-moult, and dreaming of Summer.
I was short on bread, so I couldn't resist having another go at some Soda bread. This one is Hugh Fearnley-Thing's recipe (but slightly altered by me). I'm by myself at the moment, so I made a small loaf (half his amount).
200 gms plain flour + 50 gms Oatmeal (my bit; I like Oatmeal).
1 small pot (125 gms) plain Yoghurt.
1 tsp Bicarbinate of Soda.
½ tsp Salt.
Enough milk to form a dough.
A few dried herbs (my bit; I like herby bread).
I did the usual Soda bread stuff, then baked until my amusing tomato-shaped timer told me that 45 mins had passed.
The round chopping board I made especially for serving Camembert; nice eh?... And the Soda bread's pretty good too; it held together well, was slightly nutty in flavour (the oats probably), and was really delicious, just buttered!
I shall definitely use this recipe again; it's much better than the one I used before. Thanks Hugh!
