Irish Soda Bread

Mormon.Cook's picture
  Flour 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Baking powder 3 Teaspoon
  Baking soda 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Buttermilk 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs) (or use 11/2 cups milk soured with 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar)
  Butter 1 Tablespoon, melted

Sift dry ingredients together into a bowl. Add buttermilk all at once, and mix with a fork just until blended. Turn dough onto a lightly floured board and knead lightly until smooth. Shape into a ball, and place in a well-greased pan or on a well-greased baking sheet. Use your hands to flatten dough into a 7-inch circle. With a sharp knife, score top, cutting about 1/4 inch deep and in about 2-inch squares. Bake about 30 minutes, or until lightly browned and loaf sounds hollow when flipped. Turn out onto cooking rack; brush with melted butter. Cool completely before cutting.
