Weight & Volume Measurements – Which Is Correct?
Another quick, fun and easy recipe ideal for the kids! I added raisins to my Biscuits but as always you can swap it out for whatever you fancy If you don’t have easter cookie cutters you can use normal ones or even attempt to mound the shapes by hand (good luck with that haha).
Irish Soda Bread
Bakers in America and chefs here in Ireland tend to use volume measuring devices (spoons and/or cups) for all ingredients. There is a problem with this method when trying to measure ingredients accurately. Example: flour settles over time resulting in an inaccurate measurement.
Soda Bread is recognised as a uniquely Irish product. However, there is a general misconception that the Irish have been making and eating soda bread for a very long time. In fact, unlike yeast bread which was developed by the Egyptians some 5000 years ago, Soda Bread was first made in Ireland about the year 1850 – barely 160 years ago.
