As a recipe make-up for the Tuesdays with Dorie baking group, I chose to bake the Irish Soda Bread.
The recipe in the “Baking with Julia” book was contributed by Marion Cunningham. It is a very simple, basic and wonderful recipe for Irish Soda Bread. Since it contains only four ingredients, namely all purpose flour, salt (I used fine sea salt), baking soda and buttermilk, it seemed important to me to get a really good quality buttermilk.
My favorite buttermilk is sold at a farmers store and that’s what I got before I made the bread today. While I was at the store, I also picked up some of the butter that they produce in order to be able to enjoy a thick slice of the Soda Bread with some really good and wholesome tasting butter.
