I’ve said it before, I love soda bread, it’s quick and easy to make, it smells amazing and most of all it reminds me of home. I also love this time of year and nature’s gift of wild garlic. So here’s my new recipe for wild garlic soda bread.

450g plain flour.                                   

1 teaspoon each of sugar and salt.  

1 1/2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda.     

 1/4 tsp chilli flakes.  

Approx 50g wild garlic chopped.  

284ml tub buttermilk.     

100ml milk.      

1 tbsp lemon juice

Preheat the oven at 180c fan

Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl, then add the wild garlic.

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 or put in a bread pot ( I like the way this bakes the bread)

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