Whole Wheat Soda Bread with Homemade Butter
Soda Bread Ingredients:
1½ C. Whole Wheat Flour
2 C. white flour
3 T. Sugar
1 t. Salt
½ t. Baking Soda
1 t. Baking Powder
1 Large Egg
1 ½ C. Buttermilk
¼ C. Butter + 1 T. melted
Soda Bread Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375 F.
In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients
Melt the butter on a low heat. Reserve 1 T. for brushing on the top of the bread before putting in the oven.
In medium bowl, whisk the melted butter and buttermilk together. Then add the egg and mix well.
Add the liquid mixture to the dry bowl and stir with a sturdy wooden spoon until there are no dry spots.
Butter a 9-inch skillet or pie plate and spread the dough into an even layer. Don’t push down
Brush the dough lightly with melted butter.
Bake for 30 minutes.
1 cup heavy cream
1 mason jar with a tight fitting lid
salt to taste
makes about ¼ cup butter
Bring the whipping cream to room temperature by leaving it on the counter for a couple of hours, which will get the cream-to-butter process moving and minimize the amount of shaking you’ll need to do.
Fill the mason jar halfway with heavy whipping cream.
Shake the jar vigorously until the cream turns into whey and a lump of butter. Really go to town here: bring in friends and family to take over if needed. This should take roughly 10-15 minutes total. (Bonus: arm workout.)
Drain the buttermilk from the jar and either discard or reserve for baking. Remove the chunk of butter and set it in a bowl, mashing it with a spoon to eliminate any excess whey.
Now you officially have butter, and you can flavor it to your liking. Start with a pinch of salt, taste, and continue to salt until you achieve the flavor you're after. After slathering it on some warm bread, wrap your butter in wax paper or plastic wrap and stick it in the fridge for storage, where it will last for up to a wee
