Here's Irish soda bread the old school way, with just flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk. It's not baked, it's cooked on a griddle. Serve with butter and jam, or fry it up crisp in bacon drippings.

The most basic version of Irish soda bread has only 4 ingredients, and was cooked on an open fire or a stovetop, not baked. Make your soda bread like they did in 1840, with flour, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk.

My mom bugged grandpa for this recipe but he told her he didn't have one. So, when he made the bread one day she captured each ingredient in a bowl and measured it and put it in the bowl he planned to mix it in!

This is the real thing! You can use an egg and slightly less milk for a different texture. It is also possible to use water instead of milk and buttermilk, but this makes a much denser loaf.

A basic version of Irish Soda Bread that is baked in a cast iron skillet. Try substituting the liquid with buttermilk or 2)1/2c cream plus 1/2c sour cream left to sit overnight. Try adding a tablespoon or so of sugar if you like your soda bread slightly sweet. Experiment until you get the flavor you remember.
