Bake: Blossom Soda Bread | September 22, 2011

Hello again everyone! I don’t know how many will still read my blog,and I haven’t been blogging for months! A quick update, I’ve left my engineering company for a while now, felt freed from stress, then enjoyed the festive Eid season and am now a full time tutor.

And guess what still? All these while,my home is still incomplete – well, the kitchen lastly.

Any hoot, I would like to share a simple recipe which I had taken on yesterday. Let’s give it to the Blossom Soda Bread, yo!!!

Ingredients
1 cup plain flour
1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 egg (small)
125 ml orange juice (Peel Fresh’s good)
125 ml fruit yoghurt (I used berry yoghurt)
A pinch (make it two) of salt

1. Preheat the oven at 200 deg C (I’m using conventional setting).

2. In a big bowl, sieve the flour, sugar, salt, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder. (Flour mixture)

3. In another bowl (medium), whisk the egg (manually or with a hand mixer) before adding both orange juice and yoghurt. Mix this formula well. (Liquid mixture)

4. Add the liquid mixture into the larger bowl containing the flour mixture. Mix this formula with a hand mixer until it becomes a dough.

5. Prepare a baking tray and sprinkle some flour (any) on it. Take the dough out and place it in the pan. Knead the dough a for a few minutes and flatten it at last.

6. Take a knife and cut the dough in a crisscross manner, making sure that the cuts end half-way down the dough. Let it stand for 15 minutes.

Now u can serve the bread hot with jams and cream! I had mine for lunch, although it would be more suitable for tea time. Do tell me how it goes for you!
