I have food on the brain almost all the time. The other day, I was imagining baking bread, but the amount of time it would take waiting for it to rise kept putting me off. Then I remembered reading a recipe for soda bread a long, long time ago and decided to make some this weekend.
Not only does soda bread not involve waiting for the dough to rise, it has so few ingredients it’s almost ridiculous. One of those ingredients is buttermilk, which they don’t sell in too many places around here, but never fear…this is where the vinegar-or-lemon-juice-plus-milk solution comes into play.
