Irish Brown Soda Bread
OK, This is getting only 3 stars as it is a great base recipe, but needs work. First it totally needs 2 eggs and half a cup of vegetable/sunflower/flaxseed oil to make it soft and rise better. You can add 1/2 to 1 cup of extra buttermilk so you don't need to knead and just make it soft and sticky enough to put in a bread baking tin. Fits a 2 lb perfectly. You can also play around with the flours, I put in a total of 6 cups of whatever is at hand; brown flour, flaxseed meal, flaxseed whole, wheatgerm, rye flour, cracked rye...
The result is a VERY healthy bread that is heaven. Top it with Kerrygold aged cheddar and you are in heaven... Lovely
