This is a favorite weekend recipe for us, as it’s quick and easy to make. Irish Soda Farls are a tasty and filling breakfast bread (or anytime snack!).
- 2 cups of plain flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp of salt
- 1 cup of buttermilk
Put all the ingredients into a mixing bowl.
I use a fork initially to bring all the ingredients together.
Then by hand, knead the mixture into a dough.
Flatten out the dough by hand into a pancake shape, about 1/2 inch thick. Any thicker and it can be hard to ensure it cooks through.
Cut the dough into four triangles and place on a heated skillet (medium to low heat).
Once they’re ready, let them cool on a rack for a while. To serve, slice open and eat with fruit jam, or cheese. I like to toast them before applying some butter.
