One of my all time favorite meals from our Mother/Daughter trip to Ireland was a bowl of seafood chowder and Irish brown bread, or Irish wheaten bread. It was such a simple meal, but it was so tasty! Below is a picture of that wonderful meal.
My third attempt was to use the same recipe, but I purchased a smaller loaf pan. I did get the same hearty flavor and a little better lift. So, I feel like I'm on the right track. I'm going to continue to work with the size of the loaf pans and I may try to increase the volume of the recipe by another 1/2, which should help fill the pans a bit better (there definitely is room for more batter). In the meantime, I'm going to continue to enjoy what I've made. I chose to slice the loaves and then freeze them so I can just grab a slice (or two) and re-heat them in the microwave as I please. Don't forget to add some butter, and a little bit of golden syrup on top.
Below is the recipe from Chef Adrian that I recommend. I did not make any high altitude adjustments, since I believe the height of the loaf comes down to the pans. The bread is otherwise hearty and moist as is.
