Soda bread is possibly the easiest, quickest bread you can make.
No kneading, no waiting for the dough to prove and best of all: only one dish to wash.
Soda bread has fast become my go-to loaf when we’re out of bread and I can’t be bothered to run to the shop (and I happen to have buttermilk on hand).
It’s quick, filling and best fresh out of the oven.
Start to finish, it can be made in under an hour. That’s usually unheard of for homemade bread, so this is a great recipe to get your bake on even if you’re strapped for time.
