TWD: Baking with Julia - Irish Soda Bread

This week's baking project: Irish Soda Bread.

I made some.

It was pretty easy. There were four ingredients. I mixed them with a fork, kneaded the resulting dough for a minute, patted it into a disk (sort of- it was pretty sticky at this point), made an "X" slash on it, and baked it for a little under an hour.

This is what it looked like:

We ate it with beef stew (made by George) on St. Patrick's Day, and it was perfect. It was easy and simple. Kind of like this blog post at the end of a long day. Sometimes, simple is best.

Check out the recipe at Carla's blog Chocolate Moosey or Cathy's at My Culinary Mission and other people's (more attractively arranged) Irish Soda Bread links at Tuesdays with Dorie.

I'm sure my sister Laura will have a very tasty looking photo of her bread up soon on her blog, but it's still early in Nome. Check back in a little while to see what she came up with.

If anyone would like to be my new food stylist/photographer, I am accepting applications.
