Irish Soda Bread

I like a nice big slice of this with zucchini butter or rhubarb sauce on it for breakfast.

Irish Soda Bread (Almost Level 1 carbo)

1 cup fat free milk
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 2/3 cups white whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar substitute (I use Whey Low)
3/4 cup Promise fat free margarine.
2/3 cup dried unsweetened cranberries
2 teaspoons sugar substitute

Measure out the milk and mix in the lemon juice. Let it sit while you prepare the pan.

Preheat Oven to 350. Prepare a 9” loaf pan by flouring with a combination of flour & sugar substitute.

Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Cut in the margarine using a pastry cutter or your fingers. You want the margarine evenly distributed and fully incorporated into the dry ingredients.

Add the dried cranberries and mix in.

Add the milk mixture, it should be soured and curdled. Mix in gently and thoroughly.

Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the remaining 2 teaspoons sugar substitute over the top.

Bake in preheated 350 oven for 45 minutes. When done, the loaf will be lightly golden in color with some darker coloring. Remove from oven and allow to cool, then remove from pan. Slice to serve.
