“'Farl' means four, so pat your dough into a 1.5-inch-thick round and cut into four pieces. Serve warm with butter and jam or use as part of an Ulster Fry. MMMMM! If you can find soda bread flour, use it in place of self-rising flour.”

I just had to try this interesting recipe. I did make my own self-rising flour and shaped the dough into six rounds and baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. I was not disappointed. They were quite good.



These are exactly what I remember eating in Ireland. It can't be any easier than this. (For those who don't have self rising flour add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt to each cup of AP flour.) By lucky chance I had real buttermilk on hand and it came together in seconds. Thanks for sharing Stace.
