After a little break due to a family bereavement and my Chromebook screen smashing, Slow Cooker Sunday has returned.This weekly linky runs from 9am Sunday until 12pm Friday.
This week I’m sharing a recipe for Slow Cooker Soda Bread.Bread works surprising well in the slow cooker and I’ve made different kinds over the years.I can’t stress enough how really simple to make.When we go on long country walks, this is usually waiting for us on our return. I make it a lot during the colder months just for that purpose.It’s great with a buttery spread and marmalade, an accompaniment to soup or to mop up those last bits of sauce or gravy.
- 150g plain whole meal flour
- 150g plain flour
- 2 tsp granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 175 ml buttermilk
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Grease a loaf tin and set aside.In a large bowl, mix everything but the buttermilk and oil together.Make a well in the centre.
- In a measuring jug mix together the buttermilk and oil.Pour into the well and mix until its just blended.You will need knead it several times and then place in your prepared loaf tin.
- Cover the pan tightly with aluminium foil.Pour in enough boiling water so it comes 1 inch up the sides of the pot.Place in the slow cooker and replace the lid.Cook on high for 2 1/2-3 hours, until bread springs back when touched lightly in the centre.
- Turn out and serve warm.
Have you tried making slow cooker soda bread before? Have you tried making any kind of bread in the slow cooker? I couldn’t be without my slow cooker especially in the colder months as they are surprisingly versatile, I don’t think any family should be without one.
