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.
Irish Soda Farls
Posted by Ita on Allrecipes.com
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.
