Brown Soda Bread

Guess what I made recently?  Brown Soda Bread from a recipe in the book Stir by Jessica Fechtor. It was a hit.  Moist and flavorful.  Perfect with coffee and dangerous to have around with only 2 people in the house.

This Brown Soda Bread recipe challenged me because this was one of the few times I managed to use our digital kitchen scale.  Thanks to my husband's assistance - it was measured properly.  This came out well and I will most certainly be making this again.


 So.....a digital scale. It's always confused me, especially after I thought I measured the correct amount of flour one day only to discover, I didn't convert from a liquid measurement. Way too much flour. This is disappointing when you've already mixed up multiple ingredients so you have to toss it.  Wasteful.  But this time -  a stunning success!


I highly recommend this recipe and can say, the digital scale saved the day.  If I had measured using my measuring cups I would have used too much flour.  It would have been far too heavy a loaf.


Here is the recipe from the book Stir by Jessica Fechtor.


 There are other recipes in this book that we've prepared and so far, all are keepers.

This was the book featured at Cook the Books and I am happy Deb chose this one. Remarkable story and great writing style.  If you want to know more about it at my other site click HERE.


Try this one - you won't regret it.

It's good to get back to posting about food after a short break. Next year I will be getting a flu shot; this bout knocked me for a loop...
