Saturday soda bread

250g plain white flour (plus extra for dusting)
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt
400ml buttermilk
Makes ~ 1 loaf

Preparation/Baking Method: 
Preheat your oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6 and line a baking tray with baking parchment/silicone paper
In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients then stir in the buttermilk to form a sticky dough.
Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and shape it quickly into a ball. Flatten the ball a little with your hand.
Place the dough on the baking tray. Mark it into quarters, cutting deeply through the dough, almost, but nor quite through to the base. Dust with a little flour.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the loaf is cooked through - it should be golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the base.
Leave to cool on a wire rack.
 Alternatively...serve immediately, lavishly buttered and topped with slices of avocado, seasoned with black pepper, sea salt and crushed chili flakes.

Notes: Bake for longer for a more golden bake. Cut deeper/less deep so it doesn't spread out at much?
