Imagine the feel of a knife sinking into a crusty loaf accompanied by a shower of golden, crispy crumbs right before you sink your teeth into a gloriously dense, tender and buttered slice. That’s what the Irish soda bread gives you!

1.5cupsAll purpose flour
Mix 1.5 tbsp vinegar and 1.5 cups of milk. Let this mixture sit for 5-10 minutes until the milk curdles.
You can use regular white vinegar or Apple cider vinegar for this.
Please make sure your milk is at room temperature.
Preheat your oven to 225C. Line a baking tray with parchment or baking paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together both the flours, baking soda, and salt.
Add the buttermilk and bring the ingredients together using a fork.
Turn out the rough dough onto a floured surface and knead for 4-5 minutes until a smooth dough is formed.
Place on the baking tray. Make a 1" deep cross on top of the dough ball.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the bread sounds hollow when tapped at the bottom.
Cool for at least an hour before slicing. Enjoy warm with butter and jam!
