Yeah, I hear you: you want to bake your own bread but haven’t gotten your head around sourdough. Or you simply don’t have the time to wait all day for your bread to rise…
Well, don’t worry, I’ve got you sorted with this super quick soda bread! Soda bread is an Irish loaf that’s made with bicarbonate of soda to make it rise in the oven. This cuts down the time of your bread-baking massively, since there’s no rising time. The finished loaf is a dense, heavy bread – which is thanks to the big quantity of buttermilk that goes into the dough. A lovely bread, especially when topped with a good smudge of butter and some homemade jam.
I’ve made this recipe for Luxlait, as part of our brand collaboration.
