Ingredients
  

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour 451 grams
  • 1 teaspoon salt 7 grams
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 5 grams
  • 1 + 3/4 cup buttermilk 416 ml
  • 1 cup raisins 120 grams

Instructions
 

  • Sift the all-purpose flour and adding the rest of your ingredients. Stir it and then switch over to your hands.
  • You don’t need to knead but mix and combine it until a nice dough ball forms. Place your dough ball onto a baking sheet with parchment paper and flatten it until its 1 inch or so in thickness.
  • Score the top and optionally you can brush it with some egg- wash (1 beaten egg) to get that golden crust.
  • Bake in a preheated 425F oven for 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 400F and bake for another 30 minutes. Let it cool and enjoy.

Notes

You can make your own buttermilk with 2 cups of regular milk + 4 tablespoons lemon juice. Stir it and let it curdle. Also level out your flour, and baking soda with a knife. You do not want to add more baking soda as you can taste it if you overdo it.

  1. I made my soda bread with a mix of 2 cups of all purpose flour, 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of ALMOND flour. I also used 3/4 ALMOND milk (that’s all I had on hand and it did curdle) and 1 cup of regular milk. The dough was a little more moist then I wanted so I slowly added some all purpose flour until I reached the right consistency.
