Description

This Whole Wheat Irish Soda Bread replaces half the grains with whole grains and half the butter with Greek yogurt. Perfect as a healthy swap for St. Patrick’s Day!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups white whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon tbsp caraway seeds
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Melt 4 tablespoons butter with buttermilk in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, caraway seeds, and raisins.
  4. Add the buttermilk/butter mixture to the dry ingredients and mix together. Fold the yogurt into the dough.
  5. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead for 30-60 seconds and form into a round loaf. Lightly cut a cross in the top of the loaf with a serrated knife. Melt remaining butter and brush melted butter all over the loaf.
  6. Transfer loaf to a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees F until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean, about 45-55 minutes. Let cool on wire rack and serve warm or at room temperature.
