Irish Soda Bread #2 Recipe

Step 1

Rub the butter into the flour. Add the salt and soda, mix all well together by running the dry ingredients through your fingers.

Step 2

Add the buttermilk (or sweet milk) and stir into a soft dough with a wooden spoon. With your floured hands, knead the dough lightly into a ball and turn out onto a lightly floured baking sheet.

Step 3

Flatten the dough into a circle 1 1/2 inches thick with the palm of your hand. Make a cross in the center with a floured knife.

Step 4

Bake at 425 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
