"My grandma made this every weekend to go with her traditional big Irish breakfast. It's cooked on an electric griddle and cut into toast-sized slices that can be eaten buttered, toasted, or fried crisp in the bacon drippings. Serve with butter and jam or fry insides down on hot pan with bacon drippings for a minute until golden and crispy. Unfried pieces can be toasted on the second day, but won't keep longer then that.

2 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
buttermilk, or as needed
I used this recipe for inspiration. I used spelt flour instead of all-purpose and used a vinegar-soy milk combination instead of buttermilk. This bread definitely needed a well floured surface to knead on!!! I kept the bread whole instead of quartering before putting on the frying pan. This produces a fine crumb bread, and was delicious!

This soda bread is dense and moist, thanks to the tangy addition of buttermilk.
