Soda Bread

[recipe] A simple and quick soda bread recipe. -- 450g flour - wholemeal, spelt, white, or a mixture 50g porridge oats 5g salt 1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda 25g golden syrup or honey 350ml buttermilk, sour milk, or milk with a tablespoon of rice vinegar or lemon juice -- Mix all the dry ingredients together well, then add the mixed liquids and combine quickly by hand, without over-working. You should have a soft and still slightly-sticky dough. On a lightly-oiled baking tray and with floured hands, shape into a round about 6cm high and then almost cut through with a sharp knife into quarters. Bake in a hot oven at 200°C for around 50 minutes until golden and it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom -- This doesn't keep very well, so either freeze some of it or eat it all quickly. [end]
