Rachel Allen’s soda bread

If you have some buttermilk in your fridge and you don’t know what to do with it, make this soda bread! It is so simple: you sift the dry ingredients together and then mix the buttermilk in. Done. No waiting around for dough to rise, no kneading, no worrying. It bakes in 45 minutes.  I have made it several times already and it comes out nice and crispy on the outside and perfectly done on the inside each time. I like the dense, cakey texture of soda bread. We have eaten it as sandwiches all week. Oh, and it’s amazing with Nutella (shhhhh).
