Irish soda bread is yeast free. My mum used to make it quite a lot and I'm sure there are loads of recipes on the internet. It doesn't need to be kneaded but it does need to sit somewhere warm to prove for a bit.

I never prove my soda bread. Make it in less than 5 mins, cook it in about 25 mins. Gorgeous.

Cappuccino, do you think you could add some sort of flavour to it? since natural yoghurt doesn't really taste of anything much.

Am still going to give it a go either way just for something to do!

Loads of soda bread recipes around, but here is the one I use:

1 lb bread flour (all-white, all-wholemeal or mixture) - some recipes just use plain flour, I prefer bread flour

1 tsp salt

2 tsp cream of tartar

2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Mix above ingredients together. Then add enough milk to bind it together. I can't remember the original quantity, think it might have been about 1/4 pint, I just add it until it makes a nice dough, not sticky.

Most recipes say use buttermilk. You can use ordinary milk or you can 'sour' it by adding a spoonful or so of lemon juice to the milk. Or use yoghurt.

Once you've brought it together into a dough, spend literally 30-60 seconds kneading it gently and shaping it until you have a nice round shape, about 8 cm diameter.

Put onto a baking tray. Using a large knife make 2 cuts into the bread, almost as if you were going to cut it into quarters but changed your mind so you only cut a bit of the way through!

Bake in pre-heated oven at 190-200 deg C until cooked through and nicely browned. Most recipes say up to 40 mins, but in my oven it never takes longer than 25-30 mins.

You can cut it into slices (although it's best eaten really fresh it is fine for next day's packed lunches), but I usually cut it into 8 wedges, so each piece looks almost like a triangular scone!

Serve on it's own just buttered, or with jam (home-made of course!) or with soup or a ploughman's or, well with anything!

This is a great recipe for when you realise you haven't got anything for lunch in less than an hour's time! Easy for children to make on their own too.

Haven't had soda bread since last time I was at family's in Ireland! Will add that to my book as well
