This is one of my very favourites, so I thought I'd share my recipe with you. We're having this one tonight for supper with Irish stew.
1lb bread flour
1/2 teasp baking soda (bicarb)
1/2 teasp cream of tartar
1 teasp salt
buttermilk/milk to mix
Place dry ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Add enough buttermilk/milk to give a softish consistency, but not too soft. Form into a round, score the top into farls and bake in a hot oven for 30 - 40 minutes. Cool on a rack, or wrapped in a clean tea towel.
I like it next day, too when it has "mellowed" a bit, with freshly made butter on it.
Give it a go!
