Easy Peasy Soda Bread

This recipe is loosely based on the one from the kids kitchen recipe deck which is a brilliant resource for teaching kids how to cook fun, fresh and healthy food.  My 9 year old can make this one pretty much unaided and it’s a totally tasty tea-time treat.

ok. stick the oven on at 350f 180c 160c for a fan oven

450g plain flour

a level teaspoon of bicarb of soda

150ml sour cream

150ml milk

extra flour for dusting

sift the flour & bicarb into a bowl.  push the flour to the sides of the bowl to leave a hole in the centre.  pour the sour cream and milk into a measuring jug, mix and pour into the hole in the flour.  use a table knife to mix all the dough together.

use one hand to grab all of the flour into a ball – use the dough like a dishcloth to wipe your bowl clean!

put the dough onto a lightly floured baking tray & shape into a 20cm circle (you don’t need to knead the dough)

cut a cross in the dough, almost to the base, to divide the bread into four.  bake for 20-25 mins until the bread is golden.

turn the bread upside down & tap it – if it sounds hollow its done!

put on a cooling rack until cool enough to eat – best eaten straight away with some yummy homemade jam!
