Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread

by John

1 lb (450g) wholemeal flour

4oz (110g) plain flour

2oz (50g) rolled oats

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

3 quarters of a pint (450ml) buttermilk

Combine the flour, oats, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add enough buttermilk to form a soft dough and turn out onto a lightly floured board.
Knead the dough very lightly and do not overwork or bread will develop gluten and become tough.

Shape into a large round and place on a greased baking tray. Cut a deep cross in the top of the round.

Bake at 450°F/230°C for 8-15 minutes. reduce temperature to 400°F/200°C for 20-25 minutes until loaf sounds hollow when tapped underneath.

Eat whilst still warm!
