irish-soda-bread recipe

Date:    Fri, 15 Oct 93 08:03:48 CDT
 From:    mindy.s.mymudes@uwrf.edu
 3 cups all-purpose flour
 2 cups whole wheat flour
 2 teaspoons baking soda
 1 tablespoon baking powder
 2 tablespoons brown sugar
 2 1/2 cups skim milk or replacer
 1/2 cup currants
 1/2 cup raisins
 1/2 cup crasins (dried cranberries, not traditional, I love 'em)
 (fruit optional)
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
 add all of the dried ingresients in a lrge bowl and mix very well.
 Pour all of the milk into the bowl and stir until a soft dough is
 formed. It will not be smooth at this point.  Pour out onto counter
 and knead the sticky mess for a few minutes.
 Divide into two portions and shape into two round loaves, press down a
 bit to barely flatten.  Place on non-stick cookie sheet, slash a cross
 across the top.  Allow loaves to rest 10 minutes then bake for 40
 minutes, or until loaves are golden. Very nice with jam.
