It was the capers in the eggs.

Slow Sunday Brunch

Maple Soda Bread
Eggs with capers

I tried out an adaptation of my friend Shawn's soda bread recipe. We couldn't easily get buttermilk, I do live in Chinatown. So I subbed in some yogurt, melted butter and milk. The dough ended up too wet so I added in an extra cup of flour and it worked out pretty well. Still needs some work though, but here's the recipe in progress:

Maple Soda Bread
5 cups flour
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup milk
1 cup plain yogurt
1 egg
1/4 cup melted butter plus 2 tablespoons for brushing
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Sift the dry ingredients together. Add in the melted butter and syrup. Beat the egg with the milk and add. Add in the yogurt and blend well. Knead lightly on a floured surface and place on a baking sheet. Brush the the butter. Put in the oven for 15 minutes, then lower the heat to 375 and bake until the bread passes the knife test, about 40 minutes.
