Real Irish Soda Bread

Real Irish Soda Bread created by Frugal Fifer

So many weird soda bread recipes out there. Rest assured that this one is the standard REAL one from Ireland. It is posted on the back of our equivalent of King Arthur flour, Odlums. You can add a handful of sultanas (golden raisins) for a fruit version. Simple, tried, tested and true.

ingredients

directions

  • Sieve flour, salt and soda into a bowl. Add sugar if used.
  • Rub in the margarine to resemble breadcrumbs, lifting mixture with fingertips to introduce air to the dough.
  • Add sufficient buttermilk and mix to make a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured board and knead a little.
  • Turn the smooth side up and shape into a round. Place the dough on a floured tin.
  • Cut a cross over the top.
  • Bake in a pre-heated oven, 400°F 200°C Gas 6 for 40-45 minutes.
  • When baked the underneath when "tapped" should have a hollow sound.
  • Cool on a wire tray. Cover with a tea towel to give a soft crust.

    I love soda bread and made this as part of Virtual Culinary Cruise:British Isles & Ireland. It was great along side the other dishes I made and was really simple to put together. I will be making it again and adding the dried fruit for the sweet bread next time. Thanks for posting.
