    1       lb           Flour
    1       t            Salt
    1       t            Sugar
    1       t            Baking soda
    1 1/2   c            Buttermilk
 
   The traditional bread of Ireland
   
   Sift flour, salt, sugar & baking soda together a few
   times to mix the thoroughly. Make a well in the centre
   & stir in the buttermilk gradually to make a soft
   dough. Turn out on a floured board & knead lightly for
   a few minutes. Flatten it out to about 1/2 thick.
   With a floured knife, cut a cross on it to help it
   cook evenly throughout.
   
   Bake at once in a hot oven (450F, Gas 8, 230C) for 45
   min. To test whether the cake is done or not, tap the
   bottom - if cooked it should sound hollow.
