"Unlike traditional quick breads, soda bread is more like the regular yeast bread, but it's ready to eat in a much shorter time. How is this possible? Well I won't go into the specific kitchen chemistry involved, but it has something to do with the baking soda, baking powder, the liquids, and the oven's heat. This old-fashioned bread is sure to become a family favorite!"
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch pie plate with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine dry milk powder, water, and vinegar. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, Sugar Twin, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add milk mixture to flour mixture. Mix well to combine (dough will be sticky). Turn dough out onto a large piece of aluminum foil. Knead about 10 times or until loose flour is incorporated into dough. Shape into an 8-inch loaf. Place loaf in prepared pie plate. Cut a cross in top of dough with a sharp knife. Brush lightly with skim milk. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until loaf is crusty. Lightly spray top with butter-flavored cooking spray. Place pie plate on a wire rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Remove loaf from pie plate and continue cooling on wire rack. Cut into 8 servings. Freezes well.
