Description

Irish Soda Bread is a quick bread that uses baking soda instead of yeast to aid in the rising of the dough. Requiring just 5 simple ingredients, this Irish Soda Bread is easy to make and ready in 75 minutes. This bread is made as a free-form loaf instead of using a pan. With the classic X shape cut into the top before baking, this is a simple and attractive loaf that will add a rustic homemade feel to any dinner table.

Ingredients

350 milliliters buttermilk
450 grams flour
1 tablespoon superfine sugar
1 tablespoon baking soda
salt

Directions

1In a stand mix with the dough attachment, add the ingredients in the exact order listed (use 1 pinch of the salt). Mix for 10 minutes. Make sure the dough does not look too lumpy. If it does, add more buttermilk one tablespoon at a time until it looks smoother.
2Preheat the oven to 230 degrees Celsius
3Pour out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead by hand until the dough is firm and elastic and no longer sticky.
4Mold into a ball shape and transfer onto a floured baking tray.
5Let the dough sit for about 10 minutes. Right before putting it into the oven, lightly flour the top and cut a large “x” into the top.
6Bake 15 minutes.
7Cover the top with aluminum foil, lower the heat to 200 degrees Celsius, and bake another 30 minutes.
8The bread is done when golden, and when it sounds hollow when thumping the base.
