Soda bread for when you have no time for yeast!
Inspired by the awesome guys of The Happy Pear, I decided to give a shot to this soda bread recipe and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s really earthy and filling. The texture reminds me of a bread typical of Sicily called “rimacinato”. Let’s start!
This is a highly nutritious type of bread, of course with a lot of carbs, but also a good amount of proteins and healthy fats, especially omega-3 thanks to the flaxseeds. I am considering the nutrition facts for 1/8 of the soda bread ball.
|Soda Bread – 1/8 serving|
- 600gr of wholewheat or regular white flour
- 300ml of unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used soy milk)
- 1 dash of salt
- 1.5 tbsp of baking soda
- Juice of 1 lemon or 2 limes
- 1 flax-egg (1 tbsp of ground flaxseeds and 2 tbsp of water)
- 1 tbsp of flaxseeds
- 1 tbsp of pistachios or other nut/seed of choice
- 1 tbsp of pumpkin seeds
- Preheat the oven at 200ºC.
- Add flour, salt and baking soda to a large bowl.
- Mix with your hand in claw shape.
- Slowly pour the milk and keep mixing.
- Add the flaxegg and lime/lemon juice and mix more.
- Finally add the nuts and seeds and knead the dough for 10-15 minutes.
- Once the dough is more glutinous, shape it in a ball and press it down a little bit.
- Cut a cross on the top and bake for 20 minutes.
- Let it cool down for 10 minutes out of the oven and enjoy it both warm and cold
Enjoy this delicious bread with some fruit spread and peanut butter toasted in the morning. No better way to enjoy your breakfast! Use your favorite seeds and customize the soda bread recipe to your taste. Enjoy!
