A delicious crunchy bread without sugar. It’s easy to make (you do not even have to knead and rise the dough).
A delicious soda bread with cranberries and rosemary. Very easy to make, because you don’t have to knead it. And in this case you won’t use yeast, but baking soda to let the bread rise. What you get is a very tasty, but also airy bread. That really excels when it is still warm and it only needs a little butter and nothing else. The cranberries give a lot of sweetness to the bread and the rosemary has a nice aftertaste.
- baking soda can be bought cheaply at the Toko (Chinese supermarket) under the name baking soda. It is also sold under the name sodium bicarbonate and is now available at the supermarket.
- to make baking soda “work” you need an acid. In this recipe that is buttermilk, but yogurt is also used often. If you don’t have either of this at home, you can use a teaspoon of vinegar per 250 ml of milk instead. That also works very well.
- Soda bread has one small disadvantage, you can’t store it. So you’ll have to prepare it and immediately eat. You can possibly heat it a little in the oven, but this is really the best when it is just baked.
- if you want a sugar-free bread, then don’t use the sugar. This recipe goes great without it.
