Classic English Soda Bread
3 C Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 C Milk
Before you do anything else, preheat the oven to 425 F. Then collect the ingredients and begin the recipe. Otherwise, there won’t be enough time for the oven to reach temperature before you’re done. Plan on mixing the ingredients just before baking.
Combine the dry ingredients. Mix the milk in gently until blended.
Place the dough on an oiled cookie sheet. Shape it into a round loaf about 8 inches in diameter with a rounded top. Dust the top with flour.
Using a bread knife, make two cuts at right angles, edge to edge, on the top of the loaf. (about a quarter of an inch deep)
Cover with an inverted stainless steel mixing bowl. Bake 30 minutes.
Remove the bowl and bake for another 30 minutes.
Cool before serving.
