Vintage cheddar, white onion and chive soda bread

A nice easy savoury soda bread. The recipe, one of Darina’s great convertibles, is made with 3 basics ingredients; flour, bread soda and Connacht Gold buttermilk and add the extras you want.

Ingredients

  • 450g plain flour 
  • 1teaspoon white sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 level teaspoon bread soda
  • 500ml buttermilk
  • Fresh chives cut with food scissors
  • 1 small white onion finely diced
  • 60g vintage cheddar cheese

Method

Preheat oven to 250C

Sieve flour into bowl, sieve in the bread soda and add salt and sugar.

Mix in the other ingredients.

Make a well in the centre of the flour ,pour the buttermilk in altogether.

Using hands bring flour in from around the bowl in a circular motion.

The dough should be softish not too wet.

Turn out onto a well floured surface.

Wash hands.

Tidy up the dough and flip over.

Pat and press out to about 5cm  thick.

Cut a deep cross on the loaf and prick 4 corners.

Place on baking tray and bake in oven for 15minutes at 250C then turn down to 170C for 30 minutes.

Cool on rack 

Best eaten on the day made. I usually serve warm with some half fat Connacht Gold butter. Mix in a clove of garlic and some chopped chives.
