Do you ever wonder what life would be like in a different country or speaking a different language? Imagine living a completely different way of life, it would be so exciting, right?
Even going to the shops or hairdressers would be like an adventure! Trying new foods and learning about the culture… It would all be so amazing.
I need to book a plane ticket and travel around the world in 80 days.
So yes, I know St. Patrick’s Day was last week but this recipe is from the Irish side of my family and it is the easiest, quickest and one of the tastiest bread ever created. Oh, the humble wheaten bread is my savor! Perfectly dense, hearty and delicious, it is great for a hearty white bread alternative with plenty of nutritional value.
Packed with wholewheat and healthy goodness!
This bread only contains 5 ingredients and it can be on the table in less than 1 hour. It doesn’t even require any kneading or proving. It certainly is the best type of bread to start of baking if you have never made bread before, it is so easy and so rewarding.
Simply put add of the ingredient into a bowl, mix lightly and shape into a ball and bake! Most wheaten breads have a cross pattern on top as it helps the bread to cook evenly and also encourages the bread to rise.
Wheaten bread isn’t the prettiest bread around but from such humble ingredients, it is amazing how it tastes. I know I am harping on about the taste so much but it is amazing!
You probably think, “so, she has talked about wheaten bread, but what is it?” Well, wheaten bread is what my family call brown soda bread!
Alas, the confusion as lifted!
I enjoy this bread warm or toasted with strawberry jam, or 100% cashew nut butter. The topping slightly melts into the bread making it so divine!
