Classic Irish Soda Bread

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ March 18, 2016

 

My tradition has always been to make soda bread for St. Patrick's Day. This year was no exception, but, I must say, the product was exceptional. I used a book our daughter bought in Ireland years agho Classic Irish Rercipes by Georgina Campbell. All the recipes in the book look great, including three soda bread recipes. Here's the super-easy, Traditional White Soda Bread as I made it:

4 cups all-purpose flour (I used unbleached)

1/2 teaspoon salt (mine was rounded a bit)

1 teaspoon baking soda (again, rounded)

2 tablespoons melted butter

1 3/4 cups buttermilk (the recipe calls for 1 cup, but in our dry desert climate that was far too dry)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Stir in butter and buttermilk to a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured counter and knead quickly and lightly. Form into a flat round about 2 inches high and cut a deep cross in the top. Put on floured baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes. I did the 40 min with a bit of aluminum foil loose over the top the last 10 minutes. Cool for aboutr an hour.

Enjoy with Kerry Irish butter, orange marmalade and Barry's Irish Breakfast tea.

And then take time out to read the story of St. Patrick in Glastonbury, my epic of Christian England.
