Yesterday I taught A how to make soda bread.
Shopping and cooking well are such important life-skills, ones that I was taught a long time ago, so since I was little, I've never had a fear of cooking anything, even things I've never cooked before. They don't always turn out right first time, but it's never a problem. A was delighted, both with her efforts and with the result!
Simple Soda Bread Recipe
500g plain white flour
1 level teaspoon salt
1 1/2 (one and a half) level teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda
Sift together in a bowl, then add
Mix together until you get a soft dough. Shape into a rough ball.
Put on a greased baking tray, lightly dusted with flour, and bake at 180C for about 40 mins
You'll know it's cooked if the base makes a hollow sound when tapped!
