Fruit Soda Farls - N. Irish bread yumminess

So here it is, my 1st ever recipe shared with you! As I said in the last post it is a muddle of a few recipes and some Carrie intuition. Oh crikey I am so nervous. I have made a recipe card, it's 6x4 so if you like you can print it out but seriously, if you do try this ~ constructive feedback only please!

Do remember that flour is a funny thing and the amounts you require can change on any given day due to the weather and humidity in the room or the make you buy etc...

I made it yesterday again and tried to take photos along the way but goodness it was difficult, especially when trying not to get flour or dough etc on my lovely camera and lens, nevermind the not burning my farls!

  1. I think the best thing you can do is to ship some out so we can decide whether it is worth the effort to make our own!

  2. This looks delicious, Carrie! And your recipe photos are brilliant (love that vertical tile in your kitchen!). Just to be clear, you are cooking the farls on a dry fry/griddle pan -- there's no oil or butter on it?

    1. Hugs CJ - I love soda farls but the fruit ones are better (in my opinion) as you can have them as a sweet or savoury lunch :) Thanks again for the best wishes - the same to you; may your weekend be super duper xx

  5. Think the dark crispie bits would be the best too! Have you ever thought of substituting cheese for fruit? Wonder what they might be like! I love cheese scones ��

  6. The recipe card is great. What kind of fruit are sultanas? They looked like raisins to me. Is this a case of different names for the same thing across the pond or are they really a different fruit? Anyway, it looked very good. As I like cheese, Flowerlady's idea was also appealing:~)

    1. Raisins are dried white grapes,
      Sultanas are dried white seedless grapes (a little sweeter and fatter) I believe they are called golden raisins in some countries.
      Oh my farls, they are delicious !!! xxx
