My mother Shelagh’s White Soda Bread with Dulse


Generously donated by Prannie Rhatigans from her book Irish Seaweed Kitchen

Dulse was traditionally incorporated into breads and most Irish households bake a version of soda bread, often referred to as “a cake of bread”. My mother, like so many people, bakes bread without measuring anything. She can eyeball the ingredients while chatting and turn out a perfect cake each time. To turn out really good cakes of bread, you have to have a baker’s hand, something akin to a green thumb in gardening. I had to follow her every move to see exactly what amounts she uses and what she does…here it is.

Wholemeal Seaweed Bread

The seaweed adds great taste and colour to this loaf. Great with soup, or for picnics. If using Dulse, you will find the bread will taste like bacon!
