Soda Bread

Here is another classic family recipe. I realized the other night that I hadn't made it for quite some time, so I was gratified that my kids really liked it.

Soda Bread

2 1/4 c. whole wheat flour
2 Tb. honey
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cream of tartar
4 Tb. butter
1 c. buttermilk*
1/2 Tb. salt
1 egg, beaten
  • Mix dry ingredients.
  • Cut in butter until mixture resembles small peas.
  • Pour in buttermilk and egg at once and stir with wooden spoon till moistened.
  • Turn on floured board, shape into ball (frankly, I skipped this step and it turned out just fine).
  • Gently pat into greased 8" pie plate (mine is 9"). Cut quarters an inch deep on top.
  • Bake at 375 degree for 30 minutes.
  • Serve warm with butter and any other desired toppings (such as honey or jam).
*If you don't often have buttermilk on hand, which I unfortunately don't, you can use an "emergency substitution": 1 Tb. lemon juice or vinegar plus enough milk to make 1 c. Let stand 5 min before using. Or you can use 1 c. plain yogurt.
