Yes. I am Irish.
Yes. I eat a lot of corned beef and cabbage.
I love my potatoes.
My family on the other hand are not fans of corned beef or cabbage.
I was on a quest to have a fun St. Patrick’s weekend this past weekend because Detroit was having their parade, we were going to have lil m all weekend, and we are going out-of-town this weekend for a getaway writers retreat and to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day – adult style.
We’ve had soda bread before, so I knew that was not going to be a problem.
This is the recipe I used this time: (Brennan’s Irish Soda Bread allrecipes.com)
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Stir the milk and vinegar together, and allow to stand until curdled. The took us about 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Since I cooked mine in a cast iron skillet I lightly coated it with a little oil. In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 45 minutes.
If you do not have a cast iron skillet a pizza pie pan works well.
