  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10 inch round cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and fennel seed. In another bowl, stir together the eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter. Stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, until just blended using a large spoon. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Dot with the 3 tablespoons of chilled butter.
  3. Bake for about 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until puffed and golden. Cut into wedges and serve warm.

Very good bread. Smoother crumb than I usually find in soda breads, so it's a nice change of pace. I think it got a little dry by the next day, so eat it right out of the oven for best results...

Absolutely wonderful. More like a yeast bread than most quick breads I've made.

Seriously amazing, and seriously easy to make. I love the flavour of fennel - but even if you don't particularly like fennel, it's subtle and adds a nice punch to the bread. Almost everyone I'...

Wonderful! Great with savory foods or as a breakfast treat.

Delicious bread! My husband thought it was too sweet, so next time I might reduce the amount of sugar. Nice hot out of the oven or toasted the next day.

How can something that is so easy to make taste so good??? This soda bread was the star of my dinner. Tasty, easy to make - the whole family loved it. We had it with chicken in a hot and swee...
