Irish Soda Bread
My mum has been making soda bread ever since I was born, and a lot longer. It's a staple for breakfast, lunch, and in-between meals. She mixes it in about 2 minutes flat, bakes it for about 30 minutes, and it gets eaten as quick. The best soda bread in the world - no measuring, no timing, just knowing...
A pound and a bit of flour
A handful of raisins
A pinch of salt, a teaspoon or so of bread soda, and proper Irish buttermilk - mixed and kneaded by hand
