Various forms of soda bread are popular throughout Ireland. Soda breads are made using wholemeal, white flour, or both.
Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).
Mix the flour, oat, bread soda and salt together in a bowl. Combine the molasses, dissolved in a warm glass of water with the buttermilk and then mix into the flour. Use a wooden spoon and mix well, add a little more buttermilk if the mixture is dry – it should be a soft dough. Then pour the lot into a lightly oiled loaf tin.
Bake for 45-50 minutes.
Preheat oven 200 degree
Sift flour with salt, make a hole in the center and poor in the egg previously beaten with most of the buttermilk and the melted butter. Mix quickly to form a soft dough, adding a little extra milk if necessary. Turn out onto a floured surface and roll out lightly until 2.5 cm in thickness. Working quickly, cut into 5 cm rounds. Glaze with egg or milk and set on a floured baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes until light brown.
