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.
