3 1/2 cups
quick cooking oats
1 (8 ounce) container
low-fat sour cream
I'm a little confused how bread that consists of sour cream and almost an entire stick of butter is considered lowfat, but it's delicious nontheless! Texture and flavor are outstanding, but a little lighter than traditional soda bread. I subbed whole wheat in place of one cup of bread flour which was really good, and next time I'll leave the oats off the top; they just fell off and made a mess. I'll make this one again!
I disliked this bread. Perhaps it was the overall taste; soda bread may just not be for me. It may also be that at 40 minutes, the bread was too far gone to serve to guests. The only thing I can think to say is that if you do love soda bread, using oatmeal is probably a very good idea.
Very yummy, and quick to make! I used yoghurt instead of sour cream and it was awesome. Really nice with some golden syrup spread on it =) Just got to be careful not to overbake as it'll start going a bit tough from the bottom up.
YUM! I used whole wheat flour instead of white flour, and added a teaspoon of vanilla. It needed longer than 40 minutes for me though. I ended up leaving it in for nearly an hour before the inside was completely done. I am VERY pleased with the outcome. It has a bit of a hard crust, but the inside is nice and chewy... and the flavor is right on the money. Delicious!!!
This bread is absolutely delicious! It was incredibly EASY to make.
The cooked part of this bread tasted great! If you have an oven that takes longer than most recipes call for. Don't cook this for 40 minutes, accept the fact that the top is brown and think the middle is cooked through. It will not be.
I will try this again, with consideration of cooking 45 or 50 minutes. I have hopes for this one.
very good, very easy, everyone liked it. I decided to make it after I'd already added the potatoes to the corned beef, so in order to have everything done at the same time, I made two smaller loaves, patted down a bit, & baked for about 20 minutes I used regular sour cream and whole milk, though.
Oh, my gosh, this bread is fabulous. I used regular sour cream because that's what I had on hand. I also substituted 1 cup of the flour with whole-wheat flour and did not put the butter or oats on top. I did have to bake it approximately 10 minutes longer than stated. The majority of this huge loaf was eaten by me, as I could not stay away from it. Also, the flavor of this bread is so amazing that I liked it best just plain. Slathering it with butter or jelly just takes away from the experience.
