Mini Irish Soda Bread (Whole Wheat)

My second Irish Soda Bread. Finally it turned out sooo nice... =D (I failed to make it last time, LOL) I made this mini Irish Bread early this morning. In my recipe I subtituted the buttermilk with Yogurt. And also I used just whole wheat flour to make it healthier. Below is the recipe for my Soda Bread. ^^


3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
4 tbsp butter, cut into cubes
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 2/3 cup plain yogurt
1 tbsp water

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius and butter a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats.
  3. Add yogurt and water then stir ro combine. Dough will be sticky. Remove to a lightly floured surface and knead a few times to form a smooth ball. Adding a bit more flour if you need to.
  4. Divide dough into 6 pieces. Gently pat each into a round dome and place onto prepared baking sheet.
  5. Lightly sprinkle the top of each dough with flour. With a sharp knife, cut an X into the top of the dough.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes, until nicely browned and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Let cool on a wire rack for about 5 minutes before serving.
Serve : 6

  5. Place the wedges on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the top of the scones with yogurt and sprinkle each with little sugar.

Raw Vegan Brownie

I found that my oven's broken last week. This really made me sad. I couldn't bake any cakes (and also couldn't post any fantastic food on my Instagram, hahaha...) Finally, I decided to made something raw. Then I ended up with this Raw Vegan Brownie. Although this brownie 's raw, they're pretty good. I like it sooooo much... ^^

Below is the recipe.. ^^ enjoyy~ =D


1 cup dates
1 cup walnuts
1/4 cup cocoa powder
a pinch of salt

1.     Place walnuts in food processor and blend on high until the nuts are finely ground.
2.     Add the cacao and salt. Pulse to combine.
3.     Add the dates one at a time through the feed tube of the food processor while it is running. What you should end up with is a mix that appears rather like cake crumbs, but that when pressed, will easily stick together.
4.     Press into a lined cake pan or mold. Place in freezer or fridge until ready ro serve.

ENJOYYYY~~~~~ ^^
