This delicious recipe for Irish brown bread requires:
Step by Step
You can check whether the loaf is
done by poking it with a long skewer into the center. When the skewer
comes out clean, the bread is ready to come out of the oven.
When cooling the bread, it is a must that you cover its outer crust with a towel as this helps in maintaining the crisp factor in the bread; at the same time it preserves the bread’s freshness and lengthens it shelf life.
What makes this Irish brown bread recipe fun to eat is that you can match it with any type of spread and still taste the best of both flavors.
While others prefer it stale, we like to eat it with butter on top, especially when the bread is still hot.
Other spreads that can be matched with Irish brown bread include fruit marmalade and in meat spread.
You might also try baking the bread without raisins, or substituting other simple ingredients such as black olives.
It is also served as an alternative to potatoes in seafood dishes, such as smoked salmon.
