Irish Soda Bread

As a new effort to add more frequent posts I have decided to include posts about some of the yummy things that I make.

So as today is St. Patric's Day I decided to make some mostly traditional Irish Soda Bread. I say mostly because I did add a pinch of sugar in order to add a slight sweetness to the quick bread. As it goes the bread should traditionally only include flour, baking soda, salt, and either soured milk or butter milk. Once you start adding things such as eggs, sugar, raisins you start making a tasty cake that some what resembles Irish Soda Bread but it is no more Soda Bread then a potato is.



Recipe

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
 

Preheat oven 350F and lightly grease baking sheet.

Mix dry ingredients together then pour in buttermilk and mix in with wooden spoon or your hands until the dough comes together. The dough should be moist but not too sticky. You may need slightly more or less depending on the weather.

Once the dough is ready place it on the baking sheet and cut a large x on the top of the bread. Then pop the bread into the over for about 45 minutes. When the bread is golden brown and a toothpick comes out of it cleanly it is ready. Place the bread on wire rack for cooling before serving.

buttermilk ?
11 1/4 cups seems like a typo. Is it correct or should it be 1 1/4 cups?

Re: buttermilk ?
That is a typo indeed! Thanks for noticing. :) It is 1 1/4 cups of Buttermilk not 11 and 1/4 cups. ^_^
