Traditional Irish Soda Bread

Traditional Irish Soda Bread

And some soda bread from our St Patrick’s Day feast, I’ve made soda bread before but this one was really tasty, we are still snacking on it.  It comes from “Let’s Dish” and was easy to make too.

4 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 3/4 cups buttermilk (I needed about 1/4 – 1/2 cup more so buy a little extra just in case)

1  Preheat oven to 425.  Grease and flour a round cake pan (or use the cooking spray with flour in it).

2  Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

3  Gradually stir in buttermilk until dough comes together in a slightly sticky ball.

4  Turn dough onto floured surface and knead gently a few times.

5  Form dough into a ball, press into prepared pan so that dough reaches edges of pan.

6  Cut a large “X” into dough with a sharp knife, about 1/4 – 1/2″ deep.  Cover pan of dough with another cake pan turned upside down.

7  Bake 30 minutes, covered, then remove top pan and bake uncovered about 10 minutes more or until crust is dark golden brown.
