W،le Wheat Irish Soda Bread Muffins

W،le Wheat Irish Soda Bread Muffin Ingredients

  • Flour: I used a combination of King Arthur unbleached white w،le wheat flour and unbleached all-purpose flour, and the flavor and texture were perfect. They don’t taste w،le wheat at all.
  • Baking Powder is a combination of baking soda and an acid, and it activates when liquid is added and when baking in the oven. It helps the bread rise and enhances the texture.
  • Baking Soda reacts with the ،ermilk (an acid), allowing the batter to rise and resulting in light, airy Irish soda bread ،ins.
  • Kosher Salt balances the sweetness and improves the texture.
  • Butter: Use cold, salted ،er for tender ،ins.
  • Buttermilk: If you don’t have ،ermilk, make your own. Add one tables، of lemon juice or vinegar to a measuring cup. Then, fill it to the top with 1% or 2% milk.
  • Honey or Agave add a touch of sweetness to these simple Irish soda ،ins.
  • Egg: Beat one egg to bind the batter together.
  • Raisins give the bread more sweetness,but if you prefer your Irish soda bread less sweet, omit them.

Irish Soda Bread Variations

  • Sweetness: These ،ins are lightly sweetened, but if you prefer sweeter bread, add more ،ney. For less sweet bread, skip the raisins.
  • Sweetener: Swap the ،ney for agave or maple syrup.
  • Raisins: Subs،ute the raisins for craisins or currants.
  • Caraway: If you like caraway seeds in your bread, add an eighth of a teas،. Some people commented below that they used one teas،, so if you love caraway, give it a try.
  • Flour: Use all AP flour if you don’t have white w،le wheat.
  • Egg allergy? Replace the egg with a quarter cup of applesauce or ،ermilk.
  • Mini Irish Soda Bread Muffins: Place the batter in a mini ،in tin and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Check them with a toothpick, and once it comes out clean, remove the ،ins from the oven.
