Irish Soda Bread with Stout Soaked RaisinsA very easy bread to make at home, in little time, is Irish Soda Bread.  In this recipe, to give the bread more complexity, I use barley flour that adds a unique old-school texture to the bread.  To give the raisins | currants an extra soft chew, they are soaked in Irish Dry Stout prior to mixing the dough.  Then a glaze is brushed onto the pre-baked loaves to give an extra dimension to the tender interior.  Add this Irish Soda Bread with Stout Soaked Raisins bread to a cheese tasting course.

 

There are some wonderful and unique cheeses from Ireland.  The stout marbled cheddar is cool to look at and has a nice roasty twist to the cheese.  An Irish Whiskey washed cheddar is also a nice accompaniment to create a nice Irish beer and cheese tasting.

Makes: 2 Loaves

Instructions
Dry Ingredients:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F | 177°C
  • In a bowl, add the bread flour, barley flour, light brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Using a whisk, mix well, making sure all the dry ingredients and well combined.
Wet Ingredients:
  • Drain any remaining stout from the Irish Stout Soaked Currants or Raisins, into a 2 cup liquid measuring cup. Add enough buttermilk to equal 2 cups in the measuring cup. Add this to the dry ingredients, along with the currants/raisins.
  • Mix until the ingredients form a large dough ball.
  • Divide the dough into two equal sized balls. Roll each into a sphere, then place them onto a sheet tray, lined with either a Silpat Silicon liner or parchment paper. Using a knife, make an X into the center of each dough ball.
Glaze Ingredients:
  • In the liquid measuring cup, add the buttermilk, brown sugar and salt. Using a pastry brush, blend the ingredients together. Lightly brush the outsides of each dough ball, making sure to coat evenly. This will give the finished loaf a beautiful golden crust, plus a sheen.
  • Place into a preheated oven and bake until the Irish Soda Bread registers 200°F | 93°C, about 45 - 55 minutes.
