Irish Brown Bread

My order for K.A. Irish whole meal flour came today.  So I thought I would give it a try using my recipe posted earlier for Sylvia's Irish Soda Bread {I don't know how to do the link} to my blog! ; /  The only thing I did different was use all IWM meal flour and I mixed completely with my 4 straight fingers and pushed it gently into a ball and shaped it.  I was very pleased and my husband also liked it very much...which made me happy!  I also like Bannock very much...which means bread...it's not your traditional soda bread because this one has egg, brown sugar, butter and raisins in it...but it is very good..so I made it useing some AP and IWM before I have always made it useing only AP flour ...my husband told me a few times how much he liked it!  The flavor of the IWM was very pleasing, wholesome and tender...not a chewy texture!  More like eating a bran muffin!! The  Irish brown bread went great with the leftover shepard's pie for a quick dinner!  We are eating Irish all week!!



Ingredients used...in the Bannock recipe there was Kerry's Irish butter, egg, raisins, brown sugar AP and IWM flours

Hi gothicgirl,  Thank you,  It has a wonderful flavor...5 stars...I ordered it from King Arthur.  I think it would make great scones!  It goes so good with raisins/dried fruits.  Or added to just about any breads!  Im also going to try it in the white soda bread using just a 1/4 cup.
