Comforting Scottish Bread

For today's Golden Blossom Honey post, I was going to share a delicious recipe that would be great for Valentine's Day, but last night we were blanketed in snow and the whole cold and snowy vibe steered me in another direction. I don't love snow. At all. But, there is a small part of me that thinks it's really pretty to look at from a cozy space in my house. When it's blistery outside, I get an urge for bread making. There's something about filling the house with the scent of fresh baked bread and the warmth from the oven that make cold days a lot more tolerable. I kept coming back to this Scottish Bread recipe and finally gave into the urge to grab the ingredients from my cupboard and get to work.


Scottish Bread

This bread is such a comfort food during the winter months. Jason bought me some peat bricks to burn, which remind me of an Irish countryside, and I imagine that they are used a lot in Scotland too. I've had a lot of things on my mind these past few weeks, so I lit me some peat, brewed a cup of tea, then sat down with this Scottish bread and watched the snow gently coat the world outside while I let my mind wander. This bread doesn't require a lot of kneading and you can have it complete from start to finish in under 40 minutes. It's slightly sweet, making it perfect for your breakfast needs or afternoon tea.

  5. What is a Peat Brick? I've never heard of Scottish bread, but it looks similar to a scone. I'm all about baking when it's cold outside. It helps heat up the house and our little toes. I took a peak at the full recipe, and it appears to be some pretty basic ingredients that we have around the house (except for buttermilk). Maybe we'll give it a try on a Sunday afternoon. :)

    1. Girl, you need to find you some peat if you have a fireplace and burn it. If you like a country burnt scent, you'd love it. It's so warm and cozy. It's very popular in Ireland. When it gets cold, they'll burn their peat (they call it turf) and bake bread. The bread does remind me of scones too.

  10. I remember commenting on this, but my comment must have disappeared or I didn't hit submit. My brain is on overload lately, so who knows. :)

    This does look yummy. I click on the full recipe and was surprised to see that it's all stuff we already have in the cabinets (minus the buttermilk). I was even more surprised to see that it would require some of our powdered ginger! What a different ingredient for bread. I wonder if we could substitute the almond milk in place of the buttermilk?

    1. I would not substitute as the fat in the buttermilk is essential to the texture in this recipe. I have never had good luck substituting almond milk in any of my baked goods.

      Sorry I've been on the slow front for approving comments. Hopefully, I will get better soon!

    1. It is a lot like a scone, just a wee bit off. I hope you stay nice and warm under the snow, Louise! I am counting down the days until spring over here.
