Anyone can make this soda bread from Paul Hollywood

Must Try

Of course we all know Paul Hollywood as the  blue eyed  judge on  The Great British Bake-off . He now has his own TV program on the BBC and his book has been published in Dutch: Bakken met Paul Hollywood. Today we share one of the simplest yet tastiest recipes from Paul: soda bread. 


For 1 loaf:

  • 500 grams white flour
  • Plus a little extra to pollinate
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda (also called sodium bicarbonate or baking soda, available at health food stores, specialty baking stores, and online )
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 400 ml buttermilk

Paul: “Soda bread, which is fermented with sodium bicarbonate instead of yeast, can be made very quickly. It’s perfect if you just want to make something quick for lunch. The recipe is easy to adapt: ​​to the mix you can add grated cheddar and chopped raw onion, or chopped pitted olives and sun-dried tomatoes for a flavorful bread. You can also replace half of the white flour with wheat flour.”

Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Then add the buttermilk and mix it into a sticky dough. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and quickly form a ball. Flatten the ball slightly with your hand.

Place the dough on the baking tray. Score it deeply in quarters, just not all the way to the bottom. Dust with some flour.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the bread is set – it should be golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Let cool on a rack.

Tip: soda bread is best eaten within a day. It can be frozen well.
