Irish Soda Bread
Did you know that Irish Soda Bread is apparently not even Irish?
But soda bread is historic!
Historic in the fact that you didn’t need yeast or an oven to make it.
That meant that everyone could now have this delicious delight and bake it right over their own fire!
It’s simple and comes together fast and great for the kids to get involved with.
WHAT YOU NEED:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted
WHAT TO DO:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda. Blend egg and buttermilk together, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened. Stir in butter. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 65 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
