Whole Grain Irish Soda Bread


Ingredients

Serves: 16 Prep: 15min|Cook: 40min |Total: 55min

1/3 cup golden raisins
1/3 cup dried currants
2 tablespoons apple juice or sherry
2 tablespoons butter
2 1/2 cups whole grain flour
3/4 cup oat flour
1 1/2 tablespoons oat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons caraway seeds (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups buttermilk
1 egg
1 egg white
1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Directions

1.Preheat the oven to 375°F. Coat a 9″ springform pan or a 9″ x 1″ cake pan with cooking spray. Combine the raisins, currants, apple juice or sherry, and butter in a microwaveable dish. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave on high power for 1 minute. Stir and set aside to cool.

2.In a large bowl, toss together the whole grain flour, the 3/4 cup oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, caraway seeds (if using), and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, egg white, and sugar until blended. Stir the raisin mixture into the egg mixture and then stir into the flour mixture just until combined. Do not overmix.

3.Pour into the prepared pan and spread to mound slightly in the center. Sprinkle the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oat flour over the top. Slash a large X on the top of the bread using a sharp, flour-dipped knife.

4.Bake for 40 minutes, or until golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer to a rack to cool for at least 15 minutes. Cut into 16 wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.
