Multi-Seeded Brown Soda Bread Recipe! Happy St. Patty’s Day!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A couple of years ago while vacationing in Ireland, I had the opportunity to take a cooking class at Ballymaloe Cookery School. It was a Foraging class lead by Darina Allen (Alice Waters of Ireland). For a full day we walked the lush property and discovered all the edible flowers and plants that are right under our noses.

During my stay I bought a few books, one called, “Forgotten Skills of Cooking” by Darina Allen.  In this book, are incredible recipes from Ireland that have either been forgotten or lost with time.  I adapted my Multi-Seeded Brown Soda Bread recipe from her book and it is one of the best I have tasted.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!




14 ounces whole wheat or white wheat flour

1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons, Harvest Grains Blend, King Arthur or any mix of seeds/grains

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 egg

2 tablespoons sunflower oil

2 tablespoons molasses

1 1/2 cups buttermilk


To Prepare:

1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  In a stand mixer or large bowl combine the flour, 1/3 cup of harvest grains, salt and baking soda.
