Low Fat Irish Soda Bread

Healthycooking's picture
This irish soda bread is a mixed flour bread made with wheat and regular flour. Combined with raisins and buttermilk for moisture, the soda bread batter is oven baked with added baking agents.
  Sifted all purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Unsifted whole wheat flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Baking soda 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Golden raisins 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), chopped
  Caraway seeds 2 Teaspoon
  Buttermilk 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Non stick cooking spray 1

Preheat the oven to 375°F.
In a large bowl, combine the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Stir in the raisins and caraway seeds.
Add enough buttermilk to make a dough that is firm but not dry.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until it is smooth 2 to 3 minutes.
Shape the dough into a round loaf and, using a sharp knife, slash a large X 1/4 inch deep across the top.
Coat a baking sheet with the cooking spray, place the loaf on it, and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
