Sunday Wrap-Up

by Cate on March 21, 2005

We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day a little late in our household, and tonight was the night. I made Irish Brown Bread, Shamrock Shakes and Crockpot Corned Beef. Three new recipes, and better yet, all three were great. I’ve never made bread before, so was excited to get a local restaurant’s recipe for their own Irish Brown Bread. Better still was the fact that the recipe was simple and doesn’t require the use of a bread machine.

Irish Brown Bread

Ingredients:
4-1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2-1/2 tablespoon wheat germ
1 pint buttermilk (or milk with 1 teaspoon white vinegar)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup molasses
1 egg, beaten

Mix first 6 ingredients.
Add next 3 ingredients.
Mix well. Add additional flour if dough is too sticky.
Shape into two round loafs, and mark with an X.
Bake at 425 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
