|Some of the ingredients for dinner and brunch.|
Not having baked Soda Bread before I decided to first try it at home. The recipe I'm using calls for Self Raising flour, Buttermilk and baking soda with a touch of salt. Because Buttermilk in this country comes in 500 ml containers I had to adjust the ingredient quantities to accommodate the increase in buttermilk.
IRISH SODA BREAD.
|Geoff's first attempt at Irish Soda Bread.|
500 ml Buttermilk.
3/4 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda.
3/4 tsp salt.
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl making a hollow in middle.
Add Buttermilk and mix quickly.
Kneed on a flat surface for a SHORT while.
Place in oven for about 40 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool.
Serve warm with ample salted butter.
Jason came around a few minutes ago just to chat about what to expect and to find out if we were short of anything. I will be in charge of making dinner on Wednesday evening with Shelley's help, very easy meal to make in my opinion, while Jason and Shelley will be handling breakfast the next morning.
I was telling him just how excited I am to be going, he said that he too is very excited. He's been going there since he was two years old but hasn't been for a couple of years now. Just two days till we leave, YAY!
Apparently we will be going through a pass on the way there and a tunnel too, lots of photo opportunities. I will stop and take as many photographs as possible along the rout and will be writing about the whole trip here on Geoff's Blog.
Stay tuned for the next installment of Geoff's African Safari.
Blessings to all from a very excited Geoff in Johannesburg South Africa.
