This is pretty much the same as a Jacques Pepin recipe I have for English Soda Bread. His recipe uses regular milk and baking powder and no add-ins. It's a good easy bread.

If you can't get buttermilk very easily ( which I can't, without a trek into the unknown with pith helmet and a team of bearers) unflavoured, unsweetened yoghourt makes an excellent substitute.

I can find buttermilk in my local stores, but it is expensive and I never seem to be able to use a quart of it before it goes bad. I make small amounts of a buttermilk/sour milk substitute by placing a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar in the bottom of a one cup measure and then filling it with milk and waiting five minutes for it to sour.

I was surprised recently to see Kerrygold cheeses in my local Aldi store, I guess their rich cousin Trader Joe is rubbing off on them!

They often carry imported name brand cheeses, but they are more of an in and out item, many you'll only see once a year. That keeps me going there on a regular basis to check out the cheese case!

I keep a tub of this stuff in the fridge. It works fine in place of liquid buttermilk. SACO Foods: Cultured Buttermilk

Ditto. I can't use a carton of buttermilk fast enough, even making pancakes or waffles.

Contrary to my earlier statement, I bought a quart of buttermilk today so I could marinate some chicken for frying.

On the rare occasions you see buttermilk in my neck of the woods it's in a 1/2 pint carton and is very cheap.

Aldi over here is gradually doing more and more "named" brands. They probably have a deal with the manufacturers to take over-runs. They had Heinz beans in a four-pack recently at about half the price in normal shops.

I like Aldi. In the main the quality is good and they have interesting things that other shops don't. I'm currently addicted to their tomato, basil and crme fraiche soup. It's in a can and I never buy canned soup but a friend gave me some and it's yum. About as near to home-made as you could get in a can.

I was really surprised when people started talking about Aldi here. I have only seen them in Denmark and they had good variety and really decent prices. The quality was more than acceptable.
