Delicious Yoghurt Soda Bread with Dried Fruit and Nuts
Finally I'm on holiday and finally I'm on my own so I have some time to take pics of what I cook and bake!
All I can say: try it. You won't regret it.
Yoghurt Soda Bread with Dried Fruit and Nuts
1dl rolled oats
3dl graham flour
5dl wheat flour
2tsp baking soda
3/4dl chopped dried figs or apricots (I used both)
1/2dl chopped hazel nuts
4dl yoghurt or soured milk
3/4dl golden syrup or dark syrup (I only used 1/2dl)
Mix everything, put it in a 1,5 liter loaf tin and bake it for 1 hour at 175C. Done. No kneading, no forming, nothing, just let it cool a bit and enjoy!
Note: the dried figs, apricots and yoghurt in the bread are not only pretty and delicious, but they are helping to balance the pH of the bread and make it more alkaline. To make this bread ever healthier, I will try to reduce further the amount of the syrup and add more yoghurt, perhaps add a bit more dried fruit.
