Week 15: Soda Bread and Scottish Oatcakes

Story location: Home / food_and_drink / recipe_a_week /
09/Apr/2013

A couple of quick recipes this week, both coming from the River Cottage books (which I seem to be using rather a lot these days). One was more successful than the other. The first is soda bread. This is incredibly quick and easy to make. I didn't have buttermilk but used watered down full fat milk instead. The great thing about soda bread is that you only knead it for long enough to make sure it is fully mixed together.

The resulting bread tasted as good as a bought bread and we ate it within about an hour of starting it, with a bit of butter.

The second recipe was scottish oatcakes. Unlike the staffordshire oatcake, which is more like a pancake, these are hard dry biscuits. I made them using a mixture of plain flour, porridge oats and pinhead oatmeal. I didn't follow the recipe exactly and the biscuits came out a bit crumbly so I might try again but follow the original recipe a bit more closely.
