Simple Soda Bread

Bread without a bread machine can be a bit of a labour of love and not least because it takes such a long time! So for a quick addition to your meal try this soda bread recipe. My mum used to often make this for my brother and I to go along with our dinner and The A-Team on a Saturday night!

You will need -
350g Plain white flour
175g Wholemeal Self raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
3 tsp of dried herbs 
300ml milk

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

Add the milk and mix to a pliable dough.

Knead lightly on a floured surface. Form into a round shape and place onto a oiled baking sheet.

Use a knife to mark the top into quarters.

Bake for 30-40mins at 190C

Tear into 4 portions and eat with some butter or flora while still warm!

The bread is wonderfully herby and would be perfect with soup or even curry to soak up those last bits of liquid!
