Canadian Maple Soda Bread

At the last Parents of Multiple Births Assoc sale I purchased A Pot O’ Gold which has a recipe for Irish Soda Bread.

Unfortunately that much lactose (and sugar) would wipe me out for a day or two. So I changed the recipe to the following:

  • 4 cups flour (I used bread flour)
  • 1/2 cup semolina flour
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups maple syrup
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/3 teaspoon baking soda

The directions are pretty much the same except maple syrup is mixed with liquids instead. I didn’t include the raisins (undead grapes) as I can’t eat them. I didn’t have caraway seeds to include. Unfortunately this was still too much sugar for me but it was mighty tasty.

I used a bread maker on the sweet setting (2 lbs, light setting) and had to intervene in the middle to manually mix the ingredients as the bread maker wasn’t doing so successfully. I suspect it is because the liquid content was so much it wasn’t getting enough purchase to mix.  I’ll be making another loaf this weekend and I’ll include a picture then.
