Aggie's Irish Soda Bread Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

3 cup unbleached white flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
12 tbsp (1 1/2 sticks) cold, sweet butter
2 cup raisins
1 egg
1/2 cup honey
1 cup buttermilk

Recipe Preparation

Makes 1 large loaf.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Sift the flour, baking powder, soda and salt into a large mixing
bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces and add. Cut it into the flour
with a pastry blender until the mixture is the size of peas. Add the
raisins and toss to distribute evenly, using two forks.

Beat the egg in another bowl until very frothy. Beat in the honey.
When it is well blended, beat in the buttermilk.

Gradually pour the liquids into the flour, tossing all the while with
a fork so the mixture gets evenly moistened. Continue tossing lightly
with two forks until the batter comes together; it doesn't have to be
completely mixed and should be very rough and lumpy.

Butter a heavy skillet or casserole, 10 to 11 inches in diameter and
2 to 3 inches deep. Round is the traditional shape. Spoon batter out
into the pan and push it gently to fill the pan. It can mound up
somewhat in the middle. Bake at 350 F about an hour or until the
middle is set. Cut out a piece to test if necessary.

Cut into wedges and serve warm from the pan.

Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* You can make really good smoothies by using reduced carbohydrate yogurt. Ok, well, itís not technically cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can make them with low carbohydrate yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbohydrates and make use of the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.

* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for breaded foods. Although you can possibly buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can also make them by using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the low carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a sheet of cookie paper. When it is well toasted, whizz it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in an airtight jar.

Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, onions and spring onions)

The onion, leek and garlic family is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is not enough, hard medical proof available, allyl sulphides are also thought by many experts to reduce the symptoms of colds, sterilization and diabetes.

Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss program.
