“This is a delicious brown bread closest to what we ate while in Ireland. It isn't Irish soda bread, which has a completely different taste and texture. We LOVE this recipe!”

Original recipe yields 1 loaf

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  3. Mix all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
  4. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture forms fine crumbs.
  5. Stir whole-wheat flour and quick-cooking oatmeal into the butter mixture.
  6. Gently stir yogurt into the oatmeal mixture. If mixture is too dry to hold together, add 1 teaspoon milk at a time, just until dough holds together; it should not be sticky.
  7. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface; knead gently about 5 times to form a ball.
  8. Place the dough in the center of the prepared baking sheet; cut a large 'X' in the top of the loaf.
  9. Bake in preheated oven until well browned, about 40 minutes; transfer to a rack to cool. Bread can be served warm or cold.

This recipie is fabulous. The ingredient list is perfect, I didn't change a thing. My two older neighbors (one German the other Irish) as well as my entire family really liked this quick hearty bread.

Thanks, Julaine, for this great recipe. I was looking to recreate a great meal we had at an Irish pub in Savannah. I made this brown bread as the recipe is written except, instead of shaping the dough into one round loaf, I divided it into thirds and baked it in 3 mini loaf pans (3 1/4 " x 6"). I baked the mini-loaves for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. The crumb of this delicious bread is dense and even, making for beautiful slices. I served it with the "Best Cream of Potato Soup" from this site and got raves from my husband.
