Cinnamon and Raisin Soda Bread

We had run out of milk, cereal, and eggs on Saturday morning.  I needed to provide breakfast for my lovely family to fuel our shopping trip for school shoes later in the day.  We had some low fat plain yoghurt in the fridge and of course there was flour in the cupboard so I decided to bake a quick soda bread, using raisins and cinnamon for extra flavour.  It went down very well indeed, and tasted better than cereal.

Cinnamon and Raisin Soda Bread

400g self raising flour
1.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
500g pot low fat plain yoghurt
100g raisins or other dried fruit
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp mixed spice
50g sugar (optional)

Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas Mark 4.  Mix all the ingredients together and form into a ball.  Place the ball of dough onto a lined baking tray nd flatten to about 3 inches/7.5cm  high.  Make 6 - 8 cuts in the dough, almost all the way through, then bake for 25 - 30 minutes until the loaf is golden and cooked through.
