Irish Soda Bread
What you’ll need:
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 4 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup margarine (softened)
- 1/4 cup butter (melted)
- Additional 1/4 cup buttermilk
- Preheat the oven 375 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet lightly.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, sugar, baking powder, margarine and salt together. Stir in the egg and 1 cup of buttermilk.
- On a lightly floured surface, turn the dough out, kneading slightly. Form it into a round and place it on your baking sheet.
- In a separate small bowl, combine 1/4 cup buttermilk and the melted butter. Brush the loaf with this melted butter mixture. Cut an “X” into the top of the loaf with a sharp knife.
- Bake the soda bread in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes.
Irish Potato Farls
What you’ll need:
- 4 medium potatoes (peeled and halved)
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 1 pinch salt
- Cover the potatoes with water in a large pot and bring them to a boil over high heat. Simmer on medium-high until the potatoes are tender (20 minutes).
- Drain the potatoes, then mash until smooth.
- Place mashed potatoes in a medium bowl and stir in the flour, melted butter and salt. Mix until a dough forms.
- Knead the dough on a floured surface. Use a rolling pin to flatten into a 9-inch circle. Cut into quarters.
- Cook for 3 minutes on each side in a floured skillet. Season with salt and serve hot.
