Cheddar Soda Bread Recipe
1 1/4 cups regular flour
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup butter, which you have refrigerated and cubed
1 1/2 cups of old Cheddar cheese, grated
2 green onions, which you have sliced into small pieces
1 1/2 cups of buttermilk
Preheat your oven to 425°F.
Place parchment paper or waxed paper over a baking sheet.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Cut the cold, cubed butter into the flour mixture. I used a Pastry Blender
to do this. Blend the butter in well.
Stir in the Cheddar cheese and the thinly sliced green onions.
Working gently, mix in the buttermilk to form a loose dough.
Turn the cheddar soda bread dough out onto a floured surface. Put some flour on your hands and shape this dough into a round loaf. It should be approximately 6 inches in diameter.
Move the soda bread loaf to your baking sheet. Lightly flour a knife and cut a X into the center of the loaf. This is decorative only, and should not go deeply into the loaf.
Bake for about a half an hour The Cheddar soda bread is done when it springs back if you touch it in the middle.
Slice this Cheddar soda bread recipe and make sandwiches or serve with a main course.
