I made bread today.
It was a bit of a cheat since it was Irish soda bread (which doesn’t require yeast or all that kneading) but it’s still considered bread so it counts! It was from the Barefoot Contessa at Home cookbook. The orange zest and dried currants add a little sweetness and fun. It turned out really good and we enjoyed it for a light supper slathered with butter alongside grapes and aged cheddar. Our shared plates are pictured below:
I had made cake-type breads before: banana bread, zucchini bread, etc. but never anything like this. Recipe can be found here.
