The bread is popular throughout Ireland. Because  it is easy and quickly made it is often baked fresh for tea or even breakfast. At home we used to call the loaf made with white flour soda bread. While that made with wholemeal was wheaten bread. In other parts of the country wheaten bread is referred to as brown soda or confusingly, soda bread!

Sieve the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Scoop up handfuls and allow to drop back into the bowl to aerate the mixture. Add enough buttermilk to make a soft dough. Now work quickly as the buttermilk and soda are already reacting. Knead the dough lightly – too  much handing will toughen it, while too little means it won’t rise properly.

Form a round loaf about as thick as you fist . place it on a lightly floured baking sheet and cut a cross in the top with a floured knife. Put at once to bake ear the top of a pre-heated oven, gas mark 8, 450 F ,230 C, for 30-45 minutes . when baked the loaf will sound hollow when rapped on the bottom with your knuckles. Wrap  immediately in a clean tea towel to stop the crust hardening  too much.

Wheaten bread or brown soda is made in exactly the same way but with wholemeal flour replacing all or some of the white flour; this mixture will probably require less buttermilk. Another variation is to add ½ cup of sultanas to the white bread – this loaf is know as spotted Dick.
