Irish Soda Bread

Not my loaf but wanted to show you what it looks like
It doesn't get any easier or quicker than this yummy Irish tradition, it really is this simple

Mix 340 gms of unbleached white flour with a half teaspoon of salt and a half teaspoon of baking soda.

Make a little well in the middle and pour in a 290 mls of low fat buttermilk.  Mix with a fork to make a rough dough

Turn out on to a lightly floured surface a knead for just 3 or 4 mins.  Form it into a round loaf on parchment paper on a cookie sheet or stone.  Cut a cross on the top and bake for 30 mins at 400 degrees.  Cool on a rack, enjoy while it is still warm!  Yummy
