Hargadon's Brown Soda Bread is a typical recipe from The Irish Pub Cookbook by Margaret Johnson.
Makes 1 loaf
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan.
2. In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk. With a wooden spoon, stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients. Spoon the dough into the prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula that has been dipped in water or buttermilk.
3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean and the bread sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn the bread out onto the rack and let cool, right side up, for about 1 hour to make slicing easier.
