Soda bread is a quick bread traditionally made with baking soda, which is used as a leavening agent instead of yeast. It’s simplest bread I’ve ever baked. I even made it on the trail. The classic recipe requires only few ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk. With a task to make a healthier version of it, I’ve made some changes. The ordinary flour I replaced for the whole-wheat flour and have added a mix of seeds for an extra texture. And a bit of honey perfectly complements the nuttiness of the brown flour.
