Recipe: Soda Bread

This is a quick bread recipe that really couldn’t be easier. It doesn’t have any rising time thanks to the baking soda but this also gives it a kind of heavy body which is best eaten day-of. I think the flavor leaves something to be desired (it’s nearly bland) but that might mean I try a few variations of this in the future because bread that you can have in under an hour is always good.

  1. 250g plain white flour
  2. 250g plain wholemeal flour
  3. 1 tsp salt
  4. 1 tsp baking soda
  5. 400ml buttermilk
Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Mix the flour, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl then add the buttermilk about 50ml at a time and mix until all the flour has been absorbed.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured counter and shape into a ball, flatten and cut quarter sections deeply, but not all way through the dough, with either your hand, a dough cutter or a knife.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the loaf is hollow when tapped on the base.
