Well, as best we can tell, most of the standard Irish Soda Bread recipes include raisins in the dough- which both of us dislike. Nothing against raisins, lets just leave them out of our baked goods. Instead, we made an this loaf.
Oatmeal Soda Bread
10" Dutch Oven
23 coals (8 on bottom, 15 on top)
1 2/3 cups flour, plus additional for kneading
3/4 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
1 beaten egg
2/3 cup buttermilk
Additional butter (for buttering the D.O. & for serving)
Butter the inside of your 10" Dutch oven. In a bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients. Cut in butter with a fork. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
Place 8 coals underneath the Dutch oven & 15 on top. Bake for 35 minutes, rotating the bottom 1/4 turn clockwise and the lid 1/4 turn counter clockwise every ten minutes or so. Then, ta-da! Soda bread for the campground!
