Soda Bread

I have never really made this before, but after the success of the cut rounds last weekend; I had some buttermilk leftover that needed to be used up. So soda bread it was to compliment our celeriac soup.

For one loaf you need:
450g plain flour
1 tsp each: salt, caster sugar and bicarb
about 350ml buttermilk

Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix lightly. Make a well and pour in the liquid. Bring it together, but don’t knead. Form into a ball and place on a floured baking sheet. Cut a deep cross in the top (supposedly to let out the faeries…) and bake in a hot (220 degree) oven for 15 mins. Turn down the heat to 200 degrees and bake for a further 30 mins or so.
