1/9 Photos of Traditional Irish Soda Bread
Halcyon Eve's Note:
This makes a fairly dense, rustic (ugly, even) loaf of bread that is tasty and not sweet. It is crusty and rough on the outside, chewy inside. Nummy hot with lots of butter! Note: sometimes (depending on humidity etc) it takes a bit more than the 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk--just keep adding a little bit at a time until it all holds together as stated in the recipe.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Brush a baking sheet with melted butter or spray with non-stick spray.
- 2Combine dry ingredients in a deep bowl. Gradually stir in 1 cup buttermilk, beating constantly, until dough is firm enough to be gathered into a ball. If dough crumbles, add up to 1/2 cup more buttermilk, 1 tbsp at a time, until it holds together.
- 3Place on a lightly floured board and pat into an 8-inch flattened round loaf.
- 4Place loaf on baking sheet and slash a 1/2-inch deep "X" into the top of the dough with a small, sharp knife.
- 5Bake at 425 degrees F for about 45 minutes, or until the top is golden.
- 6Serve hot.
