When someone asked me for an easy bread recipe a few days ago, I picked up a dusty old journal of my mum’s – an assortment of recipes she unfailingly enjoyed. A cursory glance at my grandma’s soda bread recipe sent my eyes a-twinkling. I was transported back to the time when I would hurriedly run down the stairs, following the fruity fragrance of this bread emanating from the kitchen as my mum baked, often in the middle of the nights. I’d stare at the oven; cupping my hands around my face over, the oven door to catch a better view and then impatiently tear through the bread as soon as it was ready. All just to eat that first slice, warm, with a generous slathering of butter.
I must admit, though, this bread had almost completely evaporated from my memory.
And to rectify that I just had to make it.
Storage notes –
