Irish Soda Bread

I made this super simple bread today for our corned beef and cabbage tomorrow. I was shocked that it came together SO quickly and it tastes so good.

shifted ingredients

kneaded and ready for the pan!
allegedly, the cross keeps the fairies from messing with your baking
this smells so good! and tastes pretty good too!

Irish Soda Bread, from Edible Ireland

4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 2/3 cups buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line pan with parchment paper. You can use a loaf pan or a baking sheet for a free form round loaf.

Whisk together flour, salt and baking powder. Add buttermilk. Stir until it forms a dough, it should be wet and shaggy. Flour your hands and surface and knead gently until it comes together more completely. Pat into a smooth circle about an inch deep and transfer to baking sheet. Cut a deep cross in the center.

Bake for 30 minutes, checking once to make sure it is browning evenly. Let rest on a wire rack at least 30 minutes before cutting it.

❤ Sarah
