Traditional Irish Soda Bread

Made some soda bread for St Patrick’s Day. It was surprisingly easy and tasted delicious.

4 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups buttermilk

1 Preheat oven to 425. Grease a cast iron skillet.

2 In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in buttermilk just until combined and starts to become stiff to stir. Transfer to work surface with floured hands and knead dough 5 – 10 times or until all flour is moistened and dough comes together. Form into an 8″ round and place in prepared pan.

3 With a very sharp knife, cut a 1/4″ deep X on top. Bake 30 – 35 minutes or until golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on bottom.
