My pal Claudia
is talking IRISH SODA BREAD and I am like
a) "oh yeah, March 17!" and
b) "I forget the recipes I love so much, I am so disorganized" so
c) while this lovely vegan soda bread bakes last night, I put a list of favorite recipes on the fridge, including Claudia's grandma's blueberry muffins....
Such an easy recipe! ***
EARLIER that same day....
And so I am walking NOOK in downtown Ithaca, and what do I come across? A stack of CDs on the street and an antique camera....people leave their fun freebies out there....WHAT a camera, hmm? My mom had one like it when I was a kid...
One of the CDs was Jesus and Mary Chain...loveloveLOVE them...LOVELOVE Hope Sandoval...this is the exact CD I found, and ten others, like Pink Martini...
Gary's vegan Irish soda bread (use milk rather than soy milk and it is not vegan :)
2 cups soy milk
2 tsp lemon juice
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
1.5 + cups white flour
1 cup quick oats
1 1/4 tsp each, both baking soda and baking powder
2 tbs sugar
1-2 tbs carraway seeds
2 tbs ground flax seed, optional
1 cup raisins
preheat to 425, grease an iron fry pan/skillet or round cake pan
-medium bowl, stir together lemon juice and soy milk, set aside 5+ minutes
-in very large mixing bowl, stir together all the rest
-after the 5 minutes, whisk the soy-lemon mix, combine with flour mixture
-put some flour on the counter, turn out the dough to knead--if it is sticky, add more flour, knead a minute or 2 until it seems nice
-form into a ball, place onto the skillet or pan, use a sharp knife to cut an X in the top, bake 30-45 minutes until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean
Yum. Yum. Yum!
In the time I am looking for recipes, you crank out this gorgeous bread! Now I'm really inspired to bake.
Who puts Pink Martini CDs out by the curb? Good for you for rescuing them. They're one of my favorites.
Are you going to eat that bread while drinking green beer?
My Dad had one of those cameras when I was a kid!
Looks like Spike really wants to help :-)
YUM! I'll post some recipes my sister just emailed. Awesome too - Hope Sandoval is Great! Nice picks Gman
What a treasure! Who leaves stuff like that at the curb? I guess somebody who wanted to make your day, huh?
Gary, I read "whisk the soy-lemon mix" as whiskey soy-lemon mix and am now wondering if that would make yummy bread!!
Obviously, it is 10pm and I need to stop reading blogs and go to sleep!
