Jack's Oat and Stout Soda Bread

Jack's Oat and Stout Soda Bread

Soda bread is very quick to make and delicious too! A cross between a bread and a scone, the reaction of bicarbonate of soda with the acidity of the buttermilk is what gives it rise, and because of this it will naturally be a more dense bread. "Stout gives a really deep flavour, and I love the toasty oat biscuity-ness that comes from using oat flour," says Jack. "I always make my own by putting rolled oats into a food processor, that way I can keep it nice and coarse."
