Cinnamon Swirl Irish Soda Bread {TWD ~ BWJ}









 




 

  






I feel kind of sorry for that plain, pasty looking round of Irish Soda Bread.   Taking it out of the oven and setting it down beside the cinnamon sugared version made it look like it came to the party and forgot to get dressed.  
Let me just emphasize how utterly delicious this bread was.  It reminded me of the cinnamon scones I used to buy at Starbuck's years ago.  The crumb is dense and if you eat it while still warm, it is as moist as a buttermilk biscuit.  To think that from start to savor it took only about one hour to make this bread is the best part of this recipe.  Oh and the fact that it has only four ingredients plus one in this case being the cinnamon sugar. 
Another beautiful aspect of this recipe is that it is a one bowl~no rise~basically no knead dough.  Simply stir it up in a bowl with a fork, dump it out, knead it for one minute and plop into a greased pie plate.  To make mine cinnamon swirled I simply kneaded in several scoops of heavy~on~the~cinnamon sugar mixture before placing the supple dough in the pan.   And as my Irish-Catholic girlfriend instructed me ~ be sure to say a prayer for the Pope before you bake it.
You must stop over and print out this super-simple recipe for yourself.  If you have never made homemade bread before in your life this is the absolute best beginner's recipe!

  4. I like the idea of cinnamon. Net time I make this, I will be flavoring it with lemon rind & cinnamon because little, in my book, is more perfect.

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

Petals :: 52 Photos Project

Where I live the Bradford Pears have bloomed and blown and the Cherry Blossoms are in full blossom.  Even though that means our allergy season is now officially underway, I cannot help opening our windows every morning in hopes of hearing the birds singing to greet the day.  Springtime has conveniently coincided with my personal recovery process from knee surgery.  As I am slowly re-gaining mobility on crutches it seems an added encouragement that the weather is also improving and the trees are welcoming my return with their flowers. What a treat it would be to be able to put down my crutches in time for Easter Sunday and walk again on my own! (I am doubtful but one can hope.) Sharing with 52 Photos Project :: Petals
