Irish Brown Bread

Hearty and dense

This is a dense wheat bread fantastic for soaking up broth from corned beef and cabbage.

Or other meat stews.

This is not Boston brown bread which is sweeter and steamed.

Irish Brown Bread

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup unbleached white flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cups buttermilk
  • 1 egg

Heat oven to 350 degrees and grease a bread pan. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Create well in center and add egg and buttermilk. Beat egg till smooth then mix into flours. Knead dough on counter until smooth. Dough may seem to dry when starting but wait for 3-4 minutes before adding more liquid. Shape into a loaf and press into pan. Bake until risen 1/2″ above pan and done, about 50 minutes.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
