Homemade Irish Soda Bread

12:00 AM

Since St. Patrick's Day is a couple of weeks away, I thought I'd share this recipe with all of you. I wanted to make this bread to go with a traditional boiled dinner. I found it on Pinterest a couple of year ago and can't find it, so if you posted this, thank you! Here's the recipe.

What you will need:

•4 cups flour
•2 teaspoons baking soda
•1 teaspoon salt
•1 3/4 cup buttermilk


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease and flour a round cake pan.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt.
Gradually stir in the buttermilk until the dough comes together in a slightly sticky ball.
Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead gently a few times.
Form the dough into a ball and then press into the prepared pan so that the dough resembles a large disk. The dough should reach the edges of the pan, but may spring back slightly.
Cut an X into the dough with a sharp knife, about 1/4 of an inch deep. Cover the pan of dough with another round cake pan turned upside down.
Bake for 30 minutes, covered, then remove the top pan and bake uncovered for about 10 minutes more or until the crust is dark golden brown.
