Cheesy Soda Bread

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded (shred a little extra cheese for the top)
  1. Preheat the oven to 425F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in shredded cheese so it is coated with the flour mixture.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture, add the buttermilk and mix until a sticky dough forms.
  4. Lightly flour a work surface and tip the dough onto it. 
  5. Gently roll and fold the dough a couple of times to bring the mixture together. Do not knead. 
  6. Shape the dough into a ball and place on onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone tray.  Cut the dough with a deep X, cutting all the way through dividing it into quarters. Dust the bread with flour, add extra cheese to the top if desired.
  7. Bake for 20-30 minutes. 
  8. The loaf should be golden-brown, if you tap the bottom it will sound slightly hollow.
  9. Leave to cool on a wire rack. ENJOY!
