Nothing brings people together like good food! Personally I’m a huge bread lover, so I thought why not celebrate Ireland by baking your own bread!
- 4 cups flour (sieved)
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 and half or 2 cups of buttermilk
First thing, you’ll like to preheat your oven to about 230°C for later use.
Then, put all the flour, salt and baking soda into a large container and gently whisk together. Now, add about 1 ¼ cups of the buttermilk to the mixture, and use clean heads to work it into a sticky dough. Add more buttermilk if the dough is too dry. Finally, knead the dough a few times (not more than 30 secs) and place it on a sheet of baking paper. Keep the thickness at around 1 and a half inches, and do a cross cut with a floured knife.
Now the dough is done, then onto the baking part!
Place the soda bread in your preheated oven and start baking it for 15 minutes at 230°C. Then, bring the temperature down to 200°C and bake for another 25 minutes. As a final touch, turn the bread upside down and continue to bake at 200°C for an extra 5 minutes.
Mmmmmmm! The easy-peezy 4 ingredient Irish Soda Bread is ready to serve. I’d pair it with butter and a cuppa! Remember to enjoy it while it’s fresh and hot!
