Irish Soda Bread

Just 3 ingredients, what could be easier?

 4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
14 ounces buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425°F. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and combine with a fork. Then grease your hands with butter and knead a few strokes. Press into an 8 inch round cake pan (greased and floured if it isn’t non-stick). Slash the top in the shape of a cross.

Bake for 30 minutes covered (an upside down pie plate works well) and another 15 minutes uncovered. Cut into slices or wedges and serve warm with butter. This bread stales quickly, so should be eaten within 24 hours.

Please don’t substitute reconstituted powdered buttermilk or milk soured with vinegar for the buttermilk. The flavour won’t be right.
