I was torn whether to make White Irish soda bread or the brown version. I decided to make the White version since I have always opted for the brown and every now and then, its good to have a change. There is very little ingredients required for this bread and I have simplified it down to as little as possible.
- 450g Plain flour
- 1 tbsp Bicarbonate of soda
- 25g Butter
- 500ml Buttermilk
- 3 tbsp Milk
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
- Mix the flour with the Bicarbonate of soda.
- Rub in the butter to fine breadcrumbs.
- Pour in the buttermilk to form a dough.
- Roll out onto a floured surface and knead for a few mins.
- Transfer to a baking tray lined with grease proof paper and score a cross on the top of the bread.
- Brush some milk on the top.
- Place in oven until brown approx 40 mins, to check if the bread is cooked pierce with a knife and if it comes out clean, it is cooked.
Perfect served straight out of the oven with a little knob of butter…..ummm
