Cheddar Soda Bread



Last night D and I went to a friend's house for a traditional Irish dinner. We had corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, and carrots, it was delicious. We brought this cheddar soda bread to share. For dessert we had a green cake called "swimming pool cake" which is a pistachio flavored cake with a cool and creamy frosting, it was quite tasty.

Cheddar Soda Bread
2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
4 tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Cold and Sliced
8 ounces Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Grated
4 tablespoons Powdered Buttermilk
1 cup Water
1 Egg
Note: Liquid buttermilk can be used instead of powdered, just use in place of water. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. Whisk together all of the dry ingredients except for the cheese. 


Cut the butter into the flour mixture.


Stir in the cheese. In a separate bowl mix together the egg and water, then add to the flour mixture and stir just to combine. 



Turn dough out onto prepared baking sheet and shape into a rounded loaf. Bake 35-40 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 20 minutes before cutting.
