Fran and I watch a lot (meaning every episode) of The Great British Bake Off on BBC. I made a few recipes from the show, and learned many more tips and techniques, especially from the master class episodes.

This morning I made Paul Hollywood’s Wholemeal (whole wheat in the USA) Soda Bread, but with cheddar cheese. It only takes 15 minutes to make the dough and 45 min to bake. Don’t be afraid to bake the full 40 minutes. I found less leaves the center a little underbaked. Like Paul, I mixed everything with my right hand thereby requiring only one bowl to clean. I kept my left hand clean to measure and move stuff as needed.

The end result was a crunchy crusted, chewy, cheesy moist bread.  (How is that for alliteration Mr. Buley?)
