Soda bread

I love soda bread - it provides a means of making bread without yeast, whilst maintaining a buttery flavour by using buttermilk. I suppose soda bread is similar to alot of sourdough breads, which have been in use for over a thousand years. This recipe is simple and enjoyable, and can be prepared quickly. Best of all it is also quite cheap to produce :).

(Makes 1 loaf)

350G plain flour
1 level tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda
Heavy pinch of sea salt
300ml buttermilk

Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and fold in the sea salt

Pour in the buttermilk and mix into a smooth dough

Mould into a large round, place on a silicone mat

Score the top into four

Bake at about 180C until golden brown and sounds hollow
