Classic Irish Soda Bread

Celebrated St Patrick’s Day with this soda bread and some potatoes of course!

2 cups flour

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons cold butter, cubed

2 eggs, divided

3/4 – 1 cup buttermilk

1  Preheat oven to 375.  Spray with cooking spray or line with parchment paper a cookie sheet or pizza stone.

2  Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Cut in butter with a pastry blender or a fork, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in 1 egg and buttermilk just until combined.

3  Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently 6 – 8 times or just until the dough comes together.  Shape into a 6 1/2″ round loaf.  Place on prepared sheet.  Using a sharp knife, make a shallow cross in top of loaf.  Whisk remaining egg with a bit of water and brush over top of loaf.

4  Bake until golden brown, 30 – 35 minutes.
