Soda Buttermilk Bread


In a large bowl, mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda, and salt together.

Add the buttermilk and using your hands, mix the dough till it comes together nicely.

Gently pour out onto a floured surface and bring the dough together to form a ball. Do not knead.

Flatten the ball slightly with the palm of your hand.

Using a sharp bread knife cut the dough from side to side.

Dust the top with some flour.

Put the pieces next to each other, very closely, on a greased baking tray.

Pop into a pre-heated oven and bake at 180C for 20 – 30 minutes until the tops are nice and brown and crispy to the touch.
