Irish Soda Farl

A quick and easy bread that would really fill you up in no time. This recipe is based on my own rendition of a soda bread, but instead of baking the dough, it is griddled in an oil-less heavy pan and served with lashings of Kerrygold. "Farl" is from the Gaelic word "fardel" meaning "four parts".

1 cup wholewheat flour
1/4 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
buttermilk (around 1 cup)

Mix dry ingredients together, then pour buttermilk and mix until dough comes together into a smooth mass.
Pat into a circle around 1 cm thick.

Cut dough into 4 portions, and dry fry in a non stick pan (or sprinkle some flour in the pan to prevent from sticking). Each side would take approximately 4-6 minutes. Cook till its nice and golden brown.

Serve while hot.. (although it's quite good the day after as well!)

butter or jam... and some coffee would be best accompaniments!


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
