"A recipe passed down through an Irish family for many generations contains none of the modern supplements like yeast or sugar. This is a simple, very effective recipe."
Method for Real Traditional Irish Soda Bread
- 1Heat a heavy skillet, griddle, or cast-iron frying pan over medium-low heat.
- 2Stir the flour and salt together in a bowl, and sift in the baking soda. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, and pour in the buttermilk. Stir the mixture quickly together into a dough, and turn out onto a floured work surface. Knead the dough a few times, just until it comes together. Gently form the dough into a flattened, round cake about 1/2 inch thick, and cut the round into quarters with a floured knife.
- 3Sprinkle a little bit of flour into the bottom of the hot skillet, and cook the wedges 6 to 8 minutes per side, until golden brown.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup buttermilk
