Food Fare: Irish RecipesSoda Bread

In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and soda, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine one egg and buttermilk; add to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough gently for twelve strokes. In a greased baking dish, shape dough into a 6" round loaf. With a sharp knife, cut a 4" slit across the top, 1/4" deep. Brush with another beaten egg. Bake at 375-degrees for thirty-five to forty minutes, or until golden. Cool on a rack.


Shenanchie's Note: I love this recipe because one doesn't have to use yeast in the preparation. It's very easy to make, and divinely tasty to boot.
