Irish soda bread

We all love the smell of homemade bread straight of the oven. However,ย we don’t like to knead it, and then waaaait for the dough the rise, then turn it into the desired shape, and then wait agaaaain for it to rise. Oh and did I mention baking AND cooling time ? Yeah, can’t be bothered. That’s when the Irish came to save our lives. No, not with green beer, but with soda bread. In a few days, make sure to thank St.Patrick for soda bread. Amen. Cause well, ain’t nobody got the time to wait. Yes yes, you can make bread using baking soda. Don’t believe me ? Try it ๐Ÿ˜Š. The pictures speak for themselves…



1 1/4 cup white flour // 1 1/4 cup wholemeal flour // 1 cup homemade buttermilk (1 cup milk of choice and 1 tbsp of lemon juice) OR industrial buttermilk ย // 1-2 tsp sugar (I used 1) // a pinch of salt // 3/4 tsp baking soda


Add the flour, baking soda, sugar and pinch of salt to a bowl. Mix together // To make the buttermilk, put lemon juice in your chosen milk and let sit for about 10 min // Flour your hands and then gradually add the buttermilk to make a dough. Add some flour or buttermilk if needed but only small quantities. The dough should be soft but not sticky // Put it in a greased loaf pan and even it // Bake for about 25 min at 390F/180C

Ta daaaa!!!
