Cheddar And Onion Soda Bread

It’s time to grab your favorite green outfits from the closet friends, St. Paddy’s Day has arrived again! Here is a cheesy twist to a traditional recipe you can enjoy during your celebration.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups bread flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese ( I like Kerrygold Aged Cheddar with Irish Whiskey)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together bread flour, salt, and baking powder until thoroughly combined. Beat in the butter, buttermilk, and confectioners’ sugar to make a dough; gently mix in the onion and Cheddar cheese. Divide dough in half, and shape each half into a ball. Place the loaves onto the prepared baking sheet, and gently flatten to about 2 inches thick. Dust each loaf with flour.
  3. Bake on a preheated oven until browned, about 30 minutes. Cool on racks for a few minutes; serve warm.
