my own Irish brown bread

After falling in love with Irish brown bread in August, I decided to try to make my own.  I found a recipe on the New York Times website.  As they recommended, I ordered extra coarse wholemeal flour from Food Ireland.  The rest of the ingredients were pretty basic.  I did have to pick up some wheat germ and oat bran from Whole Foods.

The dry ingredients, mixed.

The finished product.  The crust was perhaps a bit too hard, so next time I’ll take it out of the oven 5 minutes earlier.

I couldn’t resist picking up a few more goodies from Food Ireland.  Strawberry jam and Irish tea.  Yum.
