Irish Treacle Bread Recipe
In honour of St Paddy we’re delighted to share with you one of our very own moreish homemade bread recipe that’s simple to make & as Irish as they come.
Prep Time:10 minutes
Cooking Time:20 minutes
Makes about 7 rolls
500g Plain Flour
2 tablespoons Lyle’s black treacle*
2 teaspoons cream of tatar
2 teaspoons bicarbonate soda
Heat the buttermilk and the treacle together over a low heat until treacle is evenly incorporated into buttermilk, cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile sift together all of the dry ingredients. Mix by hand until thoroughly mixed, turn out and kneed briefly. Try not to kneed too long as the bicarbonate and buttermilk will over react preventing the buns from rising properly.
Roll into 130g balls onto a lightly floured baking tray and bake at 175 deg c for 20 minutes or until the rolls sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.
Serve warm with fresh Irish butter*, treacle or any good quality jam.
* Irish butter, buttermilk and treacle can be found at any good quality supermarket.
