Soda Bread Farls

I’ve never made soda bread before but if I’d known how easy it is, I would have. It only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.

2 cups plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup buttermilk

First of all I had to make buttermilk as we don’t have any and it can sometimes be hard to come by. All you have to do is put 1 tsp of vinegar in a cup of milk and leave for about 15 minutes.
Preheat a large flat frying pan or pancake skillet on a low heat. Add the dry ingredients to a bowl, make a well in the middle and add the milk. Stir into a dough. Knead on a floured surface for less than a minute and then shape into a circle. It should be about 8-10 inches in diameter. Cut into four.
Add a sprinkling of flour to the dry frying pan and then cook the dough for about 7 minutes on each side. The farls should be golden brown.
