Doesn't this loaf of bread look delicious?
Well, it wasn't.
I have been searching for a quick bread recipe to use as sandwich bread. Yeast breads are awesome and everything, but a concoction that can be mixed, dumped into a pan and baked immediately sounds like a dream.
Kneading, rising, kneading, rising. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood.
So I tried this Irish soda bread recipe.
Concealing its true biscuit identity in a loaf costume, it gave everyone a start--kind of like taking a drink expecting soda but getting an iced tea surprise instead.
"It's OK, I guess, just not what I was expecting," seemed to be the collective opinion around the dinner table. The remains of this thing hung around the kitchen for days. No one would give it another chance.
I believe baking powder is my ticket out of kneading and rising but this recipe wasn't it.
The search continues.
