Do you love making homemade bread, but hate to have to wait for it to rise and the steps that come with making bread with yeast in it? I think you’re going to love this recipe for bannoch bread. It’s so easy…and so delicious! My family loves it. I guess you could compare it to an irish soda bread, but you’ll have to try it for yourself! I’d make it everyday with a big smear of soft butter on it, if it wasn’t for carbs… dang carbs…why do I love you so!
Here’s the ingredient line up. You can print the full recipe below.
You’ll want to have a clean surface on your countertop ready with a good sprinkle of flour to roll this sticky dough on before baking.
You’ll basically shape the dough into a big oval. Make some decorative diagonal cuts on the top with a sharp knife before baking.
Here it is right out of the oven. Isn’t it pretty?! Like a big rustic loaf of bread.
This bread goes great with soup! We’ve got so many soup recipes here that it would go great with.
This bread was made for honey butter. I never have soft butter out at my house, it’s usually ice cold in the fridge, but on this day we did, and it was heavenly on this bread.
