Irish Soda Bread.



Irish Soda Bread

3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon cream of tarter
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 3/4 cups buttermilk

Whisk all the dry ingredients together. Add the soft butter and work in with your fingers. Add buttermilk and work together with a fork until barely mixed. Shape together by pressing into a ball (barely formed).

Spray a cast iron skillet with cooking spray and place the “shaggy” ball of dough inside. Cut an X on top.

Place in a 400° oven with the rack on the upper 1/3 of the oven for 40 minutes.

Remove from oven and brush with butter to soften the crust.  Cool and enjoy!
