Feeling Lucky: Individual Irish Soda Breads with chive butter
These rolls are best warm from the oven. Soda bread gets hard and stale after the first day so if there are leftovers I recommend slicing and freezing to toast on some other day.
1cupwhole wheat flour
1cupAP or bread flour
about ¾ cup yogurt or buttermilk
a few turns of fresh ground black pepperoptional
Pre-heat the oven to 400F.
Combine all the dry ingredients in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the dough blade attachment. Pulse for 5-10 seconds to thoroughly combine. Add the yogurt or buttermilk and process until the dough just comes together in a ball. Add the chopped chives and continue to process until the dough is somewhat elastic and smooth. My dough was a little wet so it didn’t quite come together in a ball but was barely sticky when poked with my finger.
Turn out onto a floured surface and divide into four equal pieces.
Allow the dough to rest for a few minutes and then form into slightly flattened balls, with a sharp knife score each roll with a cross cutting a little more than half way through the height of the roll.
Bake in a cast iron skillet or on a prepared baking sheet for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
To make the chive butter simply soften about a half a stick of butter and stir in about ¼ cup fresh minced chives. Cover and chill just enough to set.
