Last night, my mum and I decided we would try to make soda bread. She had already bought all of the ingredients the day before and yesterday we were trying our first soda bread.

For our first try, I think it went pretty well overall. My family think so anyway because there's only one end piece left now.

For those of you who might want to try this,
Soda Bread Recipe:
6 ounces of self raising flour
6 ounces of plain wholemeal flower
1/2 a tea spoon of bicarbonate of soda
1/2 a teaspoon of salt
1 pot of buttermilk (about 280ml)

1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
2. Put all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir.
3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.
4. Pour the buttermilk into the well and stir with a fork.
5. Knead briefly to form it into a round ball.
6. Place on a floured baking tray.
7. Cut a cross on top.
8. Bake for about 30 minutes.

Our oven is a fan oven so you may need to adjust the time or temperature accordingly.

and if you can't get buttermilk you can mix plain yoghurt with milk to thin it down and that works too.

we make soda bread every day and I always add a ton of seeds..tasty

My mom used to add vinegar to regular milk to sour it...but now we buy powdered buttermilk in a can...that way we always have it on hand!

I will definitely have to try your idea of putting in seeds and maybe other goodies!

I printed out the recipe and converted Celsius to Fahrenheit so I am good to go!

just remember that soda bread should have as little handling as possible, just enough to bring it all together, then bake in a hot oven

if you like a soft crust, wrap it in a clean cloth when it comes out of the oven, me, I prefer a crusty crust...

its also good if you add a grated strong cheddar to the mix...

This might be a stupid question, but what is bicarbonate of soda?  And where would I find it?  Thanks!
