This is a funky lookin' kinda bread! Yeah I know it looks freaky... but it is the easiest bread I ever made. No yeast, just baking soda. The flavor is salty and a bit sour maybe...? It's good.
You can easily double the recipe and make two loaves or even add some kind of spice or seasoning. enjoy.
Irish Soda Bread:
2 cups flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 ½ cups buttermilk
Preheat oven to 220°c.
Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl (you can mix by hand or in a mixer). Add 1 cup of buttermilk so a firm ball of dough forms, add the rest of the buttermilk as needed (I added ¼ of a cup). Then knead dough for 5 minutes by hand (with mixer 2-3 minutes). Shape dough into round loaf and make 3 slashes (cuts) on top of the loaf.
Bake for 15 minutes, turn heat down to 180° and bake for another 30 minutes.
