IRISH SODA BREAD

 

 

Ingredients:

 

butter

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup buttermilk

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

 

Lightly butter the bottom of a 4-5 quart covered casserole.

 

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.  Stir in the milk until the dough is just mixed.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead for 1 minutes.  Shape it into a slightly flattened cushion and lower it into the casserole.  Make a 1-1/2" deep cross in the top of the dough, cover and bake it for 45 minutes.

 

Lift the bread onto a rack to cool, at least 15 minutes.  Slice thin and serve.
