Soda bread


Mix together 250g plain white flour + 250g wholemeal flour + 1teaspoon salt + 2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda

Make a well in the centre and add 400ml buttermilk or live yoghurt

Mix into the flour to form a soft dough

Tip out on to a lightly floured work surface

Lightly knead for about a minute & form into a ball

Put the dough on a lightly floured baking sheet & dust the top with flour


Cut a deep cross in the dough with a serrated knife, about two-thirds of the way through the loaf

Bake @ 200C for 40-45 minutes until the loaf sounds hollow when the base is tapped

Eat warm with plenty of Irish butter and lots of strong tea!
