“A recipe passed down through an Irish family for many generations contains none of the modern supplements like yeast or sugar. This is a simple, very effective recipe.” - by barry
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Heat a heavy skillet, griddle, or cast-iron frying pan over medium-low heat.
- Stir the flour and salt together in a bowl, and sift in the baking soda. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, and pour in the buttermilk. Stir the mixture quickly together into a dough, and turn out onto a floured work surface. Knead the dough a few times, just until it comes together. Gently form the dough into a flattened, round cake about 1/2 inch thick, and cut the round into quarters with a floured knife.
- Sprinkle a little bit of flour into the bottom of the hot skillet, and cook the wedges 6 to 8 minutes per side, until golden brown.

"I was a bit uncertain about this recipe, even while it was baking. I had never baked a bread on the stove top. Well, I followed the recipe exactly. I did need to add a lot of flour to the surface. ..." See more The dough was a bit too moist for kneading. However, it turned out really well, and it was very easy to make. It's definitely a classic. Variations in the future may include currants or maybe some whole grain alternatives."
"finally, someone actually knows trad Irish bread does NOT contain raisins or caraway or butter, perfect recipe, though I do 1 cup white unbleached flour, 1 cup brown flour, thanks for the recipe...." See more"
