Bonnach is a bread that I have made for many years. It has a Irish/Scottish background and is a good wholesome bread that is very easy to make. Since there is no yeast it does not require time to rest and rise so you can whip this up in no time.
Ken is usually the “bread guy” in the house along with the pie guy but this recipe is super easy. I didn’t need him to bake up this wonderful loaf of homemade bread!
It is great when you are looking to make an open-faced sandwich or an accompaniment to soups and stews. Spread with a little butter and enjoy!!
