Soda Bread: First go at it

Here’s my first attempt at a soda bread.


Soda breads use sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) instead of yeast to get their rise. The alkaline in the baking soda reacts with the acids in the buttermilk to create air in the loaf.

I’m tempted to try it, but I think I’ll leave it uncut for work tomorrow. 🙂

    1. Haha! I completely agree and I usually follow that advice. This time, it looks so nice that I really just want to show the work crew what it looks like uncut. 🙂
