Made with whole wheat that is ground to a flour with a mill. Recipe analyzer would not recognize "light butter" which is nearly half the calories, fat, etc. of regular butter, therefore used half the measurement for nutrition calculation only.

Recipe Ingredients for Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread

450 g wheat, hard white, ground (or 4 c bread flour)
48 g white sugar (4 Tbsp)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt (up to 1/2 tsp)
1/4 c butter (actually 112g or 1/2 c light butter)
240 g buttermilk (1 c)
1 large egg
1 tbsp butter (actually 28g or 2 Tbsp light butter)
28 g buttermilk (2 Tbsp)

Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet or loaf pan.

  2. Reserve 1/4 cup of flour to dust board with when kneading.

  3. In a large bowl, mix together remaining flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

  4. Cut in 1/2 cup light butter with a biscuit cutter until it resembles a coarse meal.

  5. In a small bowl, combine 1 cup of buttermilk and egg. Stir into flour mixture.

  6. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead slightly. Form dough into a round and place on prepared baking sheet or fit to loaf pan.

  7. In a small bowl, combine 2 Tbsp melted butter with 2 Tbsp buttermilk; brush loaf with this mixture. Use a sharp knife to cut an 'X' into the top of the loaf if making a round shape.

  8. Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 30 to 50 minutes.

  9. You may continue to brush the loaf with the butter mixture while it bakes.
