Apple Irish Soda Bread

AuthorJulie

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
1/2-1 cup raisins
1 1/2 cups buttermilk, or plain yogurt thinned with milk
1 large egg
1 large apple, coarsely grated (don’t bother peeling it)

1

Preheat the oven to 375?F.

2

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Add the butter and blend with a fork or your fingers until crumbly. Add the raisins and toss to combine.

3

In a mixing bowl or measuring cup, stir together the buttermilk and egg with a fork, and add all at once to the dry ingredients, along with the grated apple. Stir just until combined, then scrape onto a buttered or parchment-lined baking sheet and with dampened hands, shape into a rough domed circle.

4

Cut an X into the top and bake for an hour, or until golden and the bottom sounds hollow when tapped. Cool slightly before cutting into wedges. Serves 12-16.
