6 c. (1 1/2 lb.) flour
1/4 Tbsp. bicarbonate of soda
1/4 Tbsp. salt
1 c. (8 fluid oz.) buttermilk
or sour milk

The traditional recipe requires the use of buttermilk or
sour milk, however, if fresh milk is used, one teaspoon of
cream of tartar should be added to the dry ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients
in a basin and make a well in the center. Stir in the milk
vigorously. If necessary add more milk, but the mixture should
not be too thin. On a floured board, flatten the dough into a
circle approximately 1 1/2-inches thick. With a floured knife,
make a cross in the dough. Place the baking sheet into the
preheated oven for approximately 40 minutes.
Note: Brown Irish soda bread may be made this way, but
using 1 pound whole wheat flour and 8 ounces plain white flour.
A little more milk may be required to mix the dough.
