Irish soda farls for breakfast

Yesterday afternoon as I was wasting time on the internet (the whole day actually), I discovered a recipe for Irish Soda Farls on Allrecipes.com.  I have wanted to make Irish soda bread for a while so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to try something similar out.  I was supposed to start work at 8am today so I decided to make them the night before.  My client called me early this morning to cancel so I could have made them fresh this morning.  Next time.

Servings: 4

2 cups all-purpose flour (I used 1 cup wholewheat and 1 cup all-purpose)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk (I used a splash of vinegar and regular milk)

Get a heavy based flat griddle or skillet on medium to low heat.  I actually just used a regular non-stick pan and didn’t preheat.  Place flour and salt in a bowl and whist together. Make a well in the center and pour in buttermilk.  Mix the dough quickly and knead very lightly on a floured surface.  Press into a flattened circle about 1/2 inch thicke.  Cut into fours with a floured knife.  Sprinkle a little flour over the base of the pan and cook the farls for 6-8 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

I ate mine with raspberry jam and peanut butter.  I imagine they would taste great with any toast topping.

  1. You can even slice them and make a sandwich for breakfast on the go. I toasted one the next day and it was nice and crispy again.
