Irish soda bread with Nutella® hazelnut spread
for approx. 10 portions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt then mix in softened butter. Separately, beat one egg with 1 cup of buttermilk and add into bowl. Mix well.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead slightly. Form dough into a round and place on prepared baking sheet. In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter with 1/4 cup buttermilk; brush loaf with this mixture. Use a sharp knife to cut an 'X' into the top of the loaf.
Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes. Check for doneness after 30 minutes.
Once bread is done and cooled, cut one slice and spread with 1 tbsp of Nutella® hazelnut spread.
Serve with sliced strawberries on the side.
