flax seed and chive soda bread


After seeing how much you all loved the Oatmeal Bread I posted a few weeks ago, I thought I’d give a different soda bread a try! I saw this recipe on the blog titled Farmette and fell in love with it right away! Hope you guys enjoy!






3.5 cups of flour (i used 3/4 all purpose flour and 1/4 rye flour)
1 3/4 cups of buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
3 tbs flax seed
3 tbs chopped chives


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Add all of your dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and sift. Then add your flax seed and chives. Slowly add your buttermilk- you may not need all of it (I only ended up using 1 and a half cups). Once everything is combined and your dough is slightly sticky, sprinkle a touch more flour and flax seed over the top so it is easier to handle. Place on a sheet of parchment paper and bake at 450 for 10 minutes. Lower the temperature to 400 and bake for another 20-30 minutes (mine only took about 25). When the bread is a nice golden brown, remove from the oven and let cool for 20-30 minutes before cutting into. Enjoy with a smidge of butter (I recommend unsalted)!
