This delicious, quick, and easy recipe comes from Executive Chef Stefan Matz at Ireland’s Ashford Castle.  It is a sweet little loaf that will easily serve four people.  I served it on my very special antique English Royal Winton Old Cottage Chintz china.  Note that I omitted the salt and extra buttermilk and was very pleased with the results.  This bread goes well with a meat and potatoes meal, to which I added steamed broccoli for a brilliant Irish-green color pop.  Oh, and don’t forget the Guinness!
I want to try this recipe variation for
shamrock rolls.

2 cups whole wheat flour
4 Tbl. butter, at room temperature
1 Tbl. baking soda
Tbl. cream of tartar
2 tsp. salt
4 Tbl. honey
1 cup buttermilk
          Mixing on low speed, add 5 additional ounces of buttermilk and mix until smooth.  Knead dough slightly and place in greased rectangular bread pan. 

Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
