Parmesan Onion Soda Bread

This soda bread is yeast-free, and delicious as the bread for toasted cheese sandwiches or with meat sandwiches as well. It's got a lot of allergens, including dairy, egg, and corn, but if you're yeast intolerant, it should work well.


2 cups flour
1/3 cup grated fresh parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. chopped onion
3 Tbsp. margarine
8 oz. carton of light sour cream
cup skim milk

(Topping: 1 egg white, lightly beaten and 2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese to sprinkle over it)


Heat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl, combine flour, parmesan, sugar, baking powder, salt, and onion. Cut in the margarine with a pastry blender or fork, just until mixture is crumbly.

Stir in sour cream and milk until just moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured board and knead until smooth (about one minute). Divide dough into two portions, and shape each into round loaves. Place on a greased cookie sheet.

Brush tops of the loaves with the beaten egg white, and sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. grated parmesan. Cut an X about inch into the top of each rounded loaf. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown.
