I love soda bread, it’s quick and easy to make, it smells amazing and most of all it reminds me of home. I had some leftover bits from antipasti in the fridge so I decided to experiment this afternoon and here is the result.

450g plain flour
1 teaspoon each of sugar and salt
1 1/2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp dried chilli
80g chorizo cubed
5 sundried tomatoes chopped
300ml tub buttermilk
100ml milk
1 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat a baking tray in the oven a 180c

Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl

then add the chorizo, chilli and sundried tomatoes

Add the buttermilk milk and lemon juice and mix until the dough starts to come together
On a floured surface knead lightly and shape it into a round loaf
Place it on the hot oven tray and score a cross in the top

Bake for about 40-45 minutes ( until golden and it sounds hollow when you tap the bottom of it)
