Soda Bread

Mark and Luke had a go at making soda bread today after seeing it on The Great British Bake Off a couple of weeks ago. It was really easy to make using these ingredients;

500g strong flour
1 tsp salt
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
400ml buttermilk

Luke used his fingers to mix it all together and it made a very sticky dough. He tipped it out, made it into a ball and dusted it with flour. He cut a cross in the top and placed it in the oven for 30 minutes.

They found it much easier to make than bread that needs yeast and it tasted delicious. I made some carrot and coriander soup and we had them both for tea.


  1. Ooh wow this sounds absolutely delicious i have never made bread before xx


  2. It was really easy to make, well worth having a go!
