Castle breakfast

Every Saturday morning, which ends every year with joy, when my children are old enough to take care of for a few hours, we slip out of bed, doing these right things in the following sequence: Americans all over the boiler. Hard-boiled a few eggs : Dip them in very cold water so that they do not become hot (shivering) until we sit down. And then I mix some plain baking soda, but I bake it like a crust, so it can be done in 15 minutes. We use these minutes to remove or cut all the fruit left in the fridge; Cooling it on a plate makes us feel luxurious, not the scum left in the product rack. If we feel ambitious, we squeeze some oranges. If we have grapefruit, I cut a few pieces (I’m a team grapefruit knife, not a spoon, not you asked) by half. It is known that I cut pear և blue cheese with walnuts when craving in winter և or apples with sharp cheddar in autumn. In summer it is abundant in berries or stone fruits or melons, sometimes it! Homemade ricotta if I have it. If we have avocados, I like to slice them. և Raspberry jam (for everyone).



We call it Castle Breakfast և we started this weekend ritual a few years ago when we stayed in a few castles that were turned into hotels. Ireland:. I love fancy breakfasts in hotels; kettles and politeness, pastures, small jars of jam, fresh fruit that are ideal for grazers like me. And I realized that I really wanted this to happen every weekend, which I’ll look forward to during the cold grain week’s rushing mornings. But only if I could do it, for example, in a 30 minute cannon. I’m not a housewife, nor a man of the morning, or I bet they often come in the same package.

When we got back from Ireland, I started researching my soda bread, I could go on, but suffice it to say that some are darker, some are lighter in color, some are poured into a baking pan, some are baked as a bun / round, և I love them all. But when it came to my weekend breakfast, the simplicity of the traditional formula * we learned while taking classes at Ballymaloe Cookery School best suited my needs. It’s just flour, baking soda, salt. I replace half of the white flour with wholemeal (whole wheat) flour (more on that later). I like that we get a portion of whole grains in the morning, we do not need it to be sweet, because regardless, they are going to sprinkle it with sweet things. It’s also perfect with a piece of salted butter. We do not prepare them in advance. They are fine the next day, I guess if they warm up again. But they are the best out of the oven, so why deny ourselves?

If we do not make brown bread cookies, I do pancakes, crepes, Dutch newborns, or one of the two recipes I owe you a popper or a new waffle. This is because Castle Breakfast is not so much a recipe as a philosophy. It is about feeling special on the weekend, feeling as calm and friendly at home as in a luxurious teahouse. It’s about feeling a little royalty-free, regardless of budget. I hope it feels good.

A few things.

Ukraine I do not need to tell you how destructive the news from Ukraine is right now. I am forever inspired by the work of World Central Kitchen, which gets up as soon as possible when there are humanitarian or environmental disasters anywhere in the world, creates portable kitchens, makes sure people get hot meals, which we all are. understand the essence. They have been to various border crossings over the past week feeding refugees fleeing Ukraine. I wish it were not necessary, but I’m proud to support their work. [They also have a Charity Navigator rating of 100.] Last weekend I ran a fundraiser through Smitten Kitchen’s Facebook և Instagram pages [who charge no processing fees and do not hold the money before dispersing it], hoping we could raise $ 5000, but I greatly underestimated the kindness and generosity of SK readers. We are currently raising a total of $ 343,000 և I’m humbled եմ overwhelmed watching this rise. This SK fundraiser will run for շաբաթ 3 weeks if this sounds like a charity you would also like to support, but you can of course donate to them indefinitely through their website. [Donate to World Central Kitchen directly through their website, through the SK Facebook fundraiser, or through the SK Instagram fundraiser (you’ll need to open this post in the app to do so).]

Where else have I been? London! Unfortunately, we did not stay in any castle, but we definitely did a lot. You can read about our week here.

Brown soda in buckets

Here is my formula for replacing Irish flour. 1 cup coarse wholemeal flour = 3/4 cup wheat germ + 1/4 cup wheat bran + 1/2 cup regular whole wheat flour. Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. The total weight will be 145 grams. See footnote at the end of the recipe for more information on wholemeal flour.

  • 1 cup (145 grams) Irish Large Flour Flour (see footnote above for an overview, see footnote at the end)
  • 1 cup (130 grams) wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt or 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Sprinkle 1 cup (225 grams) of buttermilk, if necessary
  • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) fat butter, cold
Preheat oven to և 375 ° F. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the wholemeal flour (see footnote above for an overview, see footnote for an overview), flour, salt, baking soda, mix well. Pour buttermilk on dry ingredients, then grate the butter on buttermilk. Stir to combine into a thick, slightly crumbly mass that is slightly damper than your average dough. If it does not connect, add buttermilk, occasionally 1 tablespoon, until. (I need at least 2 extra tablespoons when using thick branded buttermilk).

Place the puppet dough in four large piles on a baking sheet, bake for 15 minutes, until the edges are light golden brown and dry to the touch. Eat immediately, cut in half և spread with butter, jam or chocolate.

Sleepy Deb Method:Use 1/2 cup (twice) to measure 1 cup each of wholemeal flour և wholemeal flour. Use again (twice) to measure 1 cup of buttermilk. Use it again, while still wet, as a bucket so that the four blisters form freely on the flakes. Residual butter in the cup makes it easier to shake the stain. 😉:

Let’s talk about coarse flour (whole wheat). The magic ingredient in most whole grain breads or brown soda breads is Irish wholemeal flour. Irish wholemeal flour is coarse, spicy, high in fiber and has a great nutty flavor. It’s not the same as our whole wheat flour here, which is finely ground, I do not like the result when I use them as a whole exchange. Or I think I’ve created a solid pattern, it requires extra ingredients, which probably makes for an easy breakfast that bakes well for others. Here is my adviceIf you find you like these tablecloths և you want to make them more often, you can mix a can of my Irish flour և make it on your weekends. Or you can sprinkle it on a bag of imported flour. Prices fluctuate considerably (blaming the supply chain crisis), but even when it is overpriced, it depreciates on 56 shekels, my favorite way to justify things. Here are some places you can find: Air conditioners brand that I use online. Amazon:, Food Ireland:, Market:. It comes in Coarse և Extra-Coarse versions; they both work. Note: I know that King Arthur Flour also prepares Irish style flour but it ran out while I was working on this recipe, so I could not try it. If it is coarsely ground, you will make.

[* Want to add butter, sugar, raisins, or caraway seeds? Technically you should it “tea cake” or The Society for the Preservation of Irish Soda Bread might come after you.]
