“This delightfully different soda bread is packed with unique, and familiar flavors, as well as delicious whole grain spelt, that I like to mill fresh at home. It’s great toasted, and topped with honey butter, or cream cheese, any time of day. I like to make loaves like these ahead of time to freeze, already sliced, for convenient breakfasts or snacks.
My favorite variation of this loaf uses cardamom, which is a favorite holiday flavor of mine. If you are not a fan, don’t happen to have it on hand, or maybe you’d like to make these loaves in bulk, go ahead and use orange zest, and rosemary too!” – Cat Morrow

Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat Oven to 350°F.
  • Grease a tea loaf sized pan (9” x 5”) or regular bread loaf pan with flavorless oil and sprinkle lightly with rolled oats.
  • In a medium large bowl stir together your dry ingredients. Just to combine and remove clumps.
  • Combine together wet ingredients using a fork, or whisk. Be sure to get the egg mixed in. Add either cardamom, or orange zest and rosemary to dry bowl.
  • Mix the wet ingredients into your dry mixture. Once it is mixed most of the way, stir in your cranberries, or dried fruit, as well as half a cup of rolled oats. Try not to over mix, once your fruit is incorporated.
  • Evenly spread into your baking pan and sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of oats. Bake for about 1 hour 10 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes, depending which sized pan you used. (If you prick the loaf in the center with a toothpick, or knife it should come out dry.)
  • Allow to cool for about 30 minutes before slicing.
  • For sour milk:
  • Mix together 1¾ cup whole milk with 2 tsps of apple cider vinegar. Let rest at room temperature for about five minutes to curdle.
