Irish Soda Bread 
Kiddo, Florida

This legendary bread is irresistible fresh from the oven or sliced, toasted and served with butter and jelly.

  • 4 C All-purpose flour 
  • 1 t Salt 
  • 2 t Baking soda 
  • 1-1/2 t Cream of tartar 
  • 3 T Butter, cut into small pieces 
  • 2 C Buttermilk

 Directions: Preheat oven to 425F.

Sift the flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar into a large bowl. Add the butter, and rub into the flour (your best tools for this job are your thumb and forefinger) until the butter lumps have disappeared.

Add the buttermilk to the dry ingredients, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead 8 or 10 times. The dough will be soft. (Sprinkle just a little additional flour, if necessary, to aid in handling the dough.)

Form the dough into a ball and place on a floured baking sheet. With a sharp knife, cut a deep cross into the top of the loaf. Dust top of loaf lightly with flour.

Bake at 425F for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 375F and bake an additional 25 minutes. Makes one large loaf approximately 9 inches in diameter.
