I've never been so thankful for self checkout lines at the grocery store than I was yesterday. Let's just say that there was an unbelievable sale on my favorite brand of flour soooo... I bought the entire display. 😬😅 This isn't my first flour hoarding episode so I knew full well the incriminating stares and judgmental comments that I was inevitably going to face from the cashier - not to mention the other shoppers that are clearly shocked and somewhat offended by a grocery cart overflowing exclusively with bags of flour. 🤣
Hello self checkout. No accusatory stares or snide comments - AND I saved $5.00 a bag! It was totally worth buying my weight in flour. 😂
So what's a girl to do with all this flour? Bake bread of course. 🥖I'm generally a yeast bread kind of girl but I've had this recipe for Orange Cranberry Soda Bread in by blog cue for a while and what better time to give it a try right now while I'm armed with a surplus of flour?
Soda Bread is a quick bread that doesn't require any yeast so all of you who have yeast-phobia - this is the recipe for you. All of its leavening comes from baking soda which means there's no fussy rising to deal with. It’s dense, but still soft at the same time. And it has the most delicious crispy, crusty exterior that you'll ever taste.
