Pitka or Soda Bread-My Favorite

Here is the another Pitka recipe.  I have 2 others on my site.  I would say this is a simple soda bread.  It takes less than an hour from start to finish.   Serve plain, with butter, jams or cheese.

Pitka

Ingredients

5 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 egg yolk (keep the egg white.  You will need it to brush on top of bread)
2 cups plain yogurt (NOT non fat)
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil (I use Sunflower oil)

Directions

  1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease and flour baking pan.  I used my cast iron skillet.  You could use a 9″ round cake pan
  2. In a large bowl add dry ingredients.  Whisk together and make a well by pushing the flour mixture to sides of bowl.
  3. Add eggs, egg yolk, oil and yogurt in center of bowl.  Mix with hands.
  4. After mixed together form a round, flat bread.  (approx 9″ round, 2″height)  Place in prepared baking pan.  Brush top with egg whites.
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until golden brown on top
  6. Take out of oven.  While warm, wrap in a towel.  When cooled place in plastic bag to store.

Enjoy!
