“Could you be, the easiest bread in the world?
Plain to see, you’re the easiest (soda) bread in the world” x2
Props to my Dad, who perfected, and regularly refines this easiest (but also very tasty) riff on Irish soda bread, made without yeast.
450g Flour (ideally, a combination of strong white and brown)
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon salt
350ml (12 fl oz) yoghurt
1. Put all ingredients in a bowl
2. Knead together by hand
3. Bake in the oven for 15 mins at gas mark 8, then for 30 mins at gas mark 6.
Eh voila. To check if your bread is ready, stick a match into it. If it comes out clean, you’re good to go.
OK, not the most healthy recipe to start with, but one my nanna taught me. Delicious too. (“The secret’s in the mustard.”) Impressive, hassle-free baking.
The measurements below make about 12 small scones (or about 6 jumbos).
6oz self raising flour
Pinch of salt and pepper
½ teaspoon of mustard
1oz of margarine
3oz cheese (grated)
1 medium egg
2 tablespoons of milk
“I always use more cheese” says my aunt, to make–
1. Oven on at 220°, 425F or gas mark 7
2. Grease a baking tray
3. Mix flour, seasoning
4. Rub in margarine
5. Stir in cheese (leave a little bit for tops)
6. Mix to a soft dough with egg and milk
7. Roll out 1/2” thin and cut
8. Put onto a baking tray brush tops with what’s left of your egg/milk mix and sprinkle a little cheese on
9. Put in oven for 10-15 minutes
