Sodabread from Ireland - very tasty!


12 ozs Wholemeal Flour
4 ozs Plain White Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda (Bread Soda)
1/2 pint Buttermilk,
or 1/4 pint of soured cream mixed with 1/4 pint of water,
or 1/2 pint of sour milk

Sift white flour, salt and bread soda, and mix thoroughly with wholemeal flour. Make a well in the centre and add most of the buttermilk. Working from the centre, mix with your hand adding more milk if necessary. The dough should be soft but not sticky. Turn out onto a floured board and knead lightly, just enough to shape into a round. Put onto a floured baking sheet and cut a deep cross over the top of the bread.

Bake on the top shelf of a pre-heated oven, at 2200C / 4250F for 30 / 40 minutes.

If you don't like a very crisp crust, wrap the soda bread in a damp tea-towel whilst it cools, so the steam it gives off softens the crust a little.
