Irish Soda Bread with Stout Butter

Ingredients

  • 3¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1½ tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1½ tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 4 tbsp. salted butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp. dark molasses
  • 2 tsp. toasted caraway seeds
  • 2 tbsp. salted butter, melted (optional)
    For the Stout Butter:
  • 8 tbsp. unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 1½ tbsp. Irish stout
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar

Instructions

  1. Grease and flour 3-Qt./3 L Casserole base and cone of the TupperWave® Stack Cooker. Place cone in center of Stack Cooker and set aside.
  2. In a Thatsa® Large Bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt. Rub butter into flour mixture until coarse crumbs form. Create a well in the center of the flour.
  3. In a Thatsa® Mini Bowl, whisk together buttermilk and molasses. Pour buttermilk mixture into the well. Using a spatula or fork, pull flour into the buttermilk until a crumbly dough forms. Knead dough briefly until dry pieces just come together; do not overmix. Dough will look scrappy and uneven.
  4. Drop 3"/7.6 cm pieces of dough into the buttered Stack Cooker, forming a loose ring of dough around the cone. If desired, pour 2 tbsp. of melted butter over the top of the dough.
  5. Microwave on high power, uncovered, 8 minutes. Remove from microwave. Let stand 10 minutes before removing from Stack Cooker.
  6. Meanwhile, make the butter. In a Thatsa® Medium Bowl, stir together butter, stout and sugar until well combined. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve. Serve with sliced Irish Soda Bread.
