Cheddar Irish Soda Bread

 
Ingredients
No Yeast No Rise Cheddar Irish Soda Bread
3 1/2 cups AP flour
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of sea salt
1/2 cup of Irish cheddar, grated
2 TB butter, softened
1 1/4 cups of buttermilk
(6 sundried tomatoes, chopped, optional)
Method
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet or spray with cooking spray. Sift together dry ingredients. Making a well in the center, add all other ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon until a dough begins to form. With clean hands, knead the dough for about 5 minutes and shape into a round. Place on baking sheet and cut an “x” into the center about 1/4 inch into the dough. Dust the top with a little flour. Bake until browned 45 – 50 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Enjoy with Irish butter!
Background – There are many leavening agents for bread. These agents give the gluten in flour structure. Baking soda, known as bread soda in Ireland is a substitute for breads requiring yeast or eggs. In other words, it’s a less expensive way to have some bread with your dinner. Try it today, straight from your pantry items.
