St. Patrick's Day is complete with a side of traditional Irish soda bread | Rigsby
Do you love the thought of making your own bread, but are worried that it will be too time-consuming or too much trouble? Does the smell of bread baking send you into sensory overload?
Well, have I got a recipe for you! Traditional Irish Soda Bread is so simple to make, you won't need to rely on the luck o' the Irish to pull it off.
You only have to knead the dough a few times to bring the ingredients together, and because baking soda is the leavening agent, you don't even have to let it rise.

Irish Soda Bread
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cup buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet and lightly spray with baking non-stick spray.
Add flour, salt and baking soda to a large bowl and using a fork mix well.
Add 1-¼ cup of buttermilk and mix until the flour is moistened and partially comes together. If necessary, add a little more buttermilk if your dough is too dry.
Pour this mixture out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until the dough forms a nice ball and holds together. Do not knead too much, or your bread will be tough.
Shape the dough into approximately a six-inch disk about two inches thick and place on your baking sheet.
Using a knife, cut an X about one-inch deep and extend it almost to the edges of the dough. This helps your bread cook in the middle.
Bake for about 35 minutes or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when you tap on it.
Transfer to a rack to cool.
Serve warm with Irish butter.
