Soda Bread

Unless you want to eat pancakes for breakfast for days you can use up that buttermilk by making a loaf of soda bread.

An interview with Rory O'Connell worth reading up on the background of soda bread.

My version below is not typically traditional as it has sunflower/pumpkin seeds but it is tasty.

Warm oven to 180 c

Butter a 2 lb loaf tin

In a mixing bowl:

1 cup self raising flour

1 cup of Howard's extra coarse flour (or another brand of wholemeal flour)

1 teaspoon of baking soda

pinch of salt

4-6 dessert spoonfuls of seeds (pumpkin or sunflower) optional

mix in 400 ml of buttermilk, mix well

Pour mixture into tin.

Sprinkle with seeds

bake for 1 hour at 170-180 or until brown.

Enjoy fresh with dollops of butter.
