TWD : Irish Soda Bread

This round of Tuesdays With Dorie, Baking with Julia, is Irish Soda Bread.  I'd made this once before, years ago, before kiddos.....when I was first learning to bake.  I can't remember anything about how it had come out, so I didn't know what to expect with this one.

This recipe could not have been easier!  There's only 4 ingredients!  Flour, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk......that's it!  Throw the ingredients into a bowl, mix together, the knead the mixture for about a minute.  Form into a loaf and bake.  In about an hour you'll be slicing up some delicious, hot bread (yes, I know you're supposed to wait until it totally cool.....but really, can you wait??)  We had our with some creamed honey on top.  Delicious!!  I'm sure a lot of the bakers will have added some fun additions (dried fruit, nuts, herbs), but I kept mine nice and simple.

To see the other baker's results, go to Tuesdays with Dorie.  For the recipe, check out our hosts.......Cathy at My Culinary Mission or Carla at Chocolate Moosey.......and Enjoy!

  6. It is impossible to wait for this bread to cool. Must slice when still a bit warm and slather with butter!

  8. Your loaf looks absolutely delicious! I bet it was great with creamed honey. And no, I can never wait for things to cool, It's genetically impossible for me.
