irish freckle loaf




Yield 1 loaf

This name just really gets me.  It's sort of the perfect name for a bread.  This one's a soda bread, meaning that it does not require yeast to rise.  It also has no added sugar, so it ends up tasting more like a biscuit filled with dried fruit and crunch from the granola.  While this was not the family favorite, it was mine by far.


3 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour or self-rising flour

1 cup granola (fruit and nut + oats)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 Tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 1/2 cups buttermilk



Once baked, allow to sit for ten minutes in the pan, then slide a knife around the outside to loosen and invert onto a wire rack to cool.

To serve, slice, toast and slather some sweet butter all over!
