The Big Green Egg website had a companion recipe for this soda bread to go with their IRISH BEEF STEW
recipe. It was similar but different than the IRISH SODA BREAD
recipe that I made about a year ago. They were similar in that they were both quick bread recipes with no yeast used and no rise time required. The ingredients are all mixed together, turned out onto the counter, kneaded a bit and formed into a loaf. The two recipes used different flours. This recipe used Whole Wheat flour as one of the flours and included molasses as an ingredient. No doubt this contributed to the brown color of this bread. The dough was baked until the loaf reached an internal temperature of 195. This was about 35 minutes ate 375 degrees. While the bread was cooling I brushed it with some melted butter. The bread had great flavor, including molasses which I am a big sucker for. It had a crispy crust that had a nice crunch without being too crispy to chew. The insides were moist, unlike lots of soda breads which tend to be dry. Easy to make and great flavor and texture-you can’t beat that.
