Irish Soda Bread

With minimal kneading and no yeast, rustic soda bread is one of the easiest breads you’ll make. A tablespoon of caraway seeds or a handful of raisins can be added to the dough if desired.

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
Butter for serving

Preheat oven to 425

In a large bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt and buttermilk. Gather dough into a ball. Place on lightly floured surface and knead just until bread holds together, about 1-2 minutes. Shape into a 6-inch round and place on a baking sheet that has been coated with cooking spray. Using a sharp knife, cut an X in the top of the dough. Bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes. Loaf should sound hollow when tapped. Cool slightly and serve warm with butter.
