Updated on March 15, 2013

Traditional Irish soda bread

Soda Bread

1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

1 ½ cups all purpose flour

2 tsp sugar

1 tsp salt

1 ½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

1 ¼ cups buttermilk

Heat oven 375 Degrees

In large bowl combine the flours, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir until mixed well.

Slowly pour in the melted butter and the buttermilk, stirring as they’re added. Stir only long enough to moisten the dry ingredients. Form a ball with the dough.

Place on a lightly floured surface. Lightly flour hands.

Knead lightly until dough is smooth.

Grease and flour a cookie sheet.

Form dough into an 8 inch round ball with a raised center.

Dip a knife in flour and cut a large deep cross into the dough.

Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.

Cut into wedges and serve warm.
