Irish Soda Bread
This simple and delicious Irish soda bread has just four ingredients and is so quick and easy to make, with no yeast necessary!
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 450.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the buttermilk. Mix gently until the dough just starts to come together. Dump the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and gently knead to form a ball.
Place the ball of dough on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and pat into a circle that is two inches thick. Cut an X in the top of the loaf.
Bake 15 minutes at 450, then reduce the heat to 400 and bake for an additional 20-30 minutes, until the loaf is deep golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from oven and let cool on a cooling rack before serving.
