|Instead of buttermilk I have found adding 2 teaspoons of lemon juice per 250ml of milk works really well.|
It's cheaper and means I'm not reliant on trawling local shops for buttermilk.
Flavoured vinegar is an inspired idea! I will definitely be trying that - unless my sister is visiting as she is intolerant to yeast, hence the reason for making soda bread for her. I wonder what quantity of yeast is contained in a "splash of vinegar". Not much!
Bobby - can you share your neighbour's soda bread recipe please?
This is the one I've been using, by Paul Hollywood on the BBC website - delicious:
250g/9oz plain wholemeal flour
250g/9oz plain white flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt
420ml/15fl oz buttermilk
extra flour for dusting
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.
In a large bowl, mix together the two types of flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
Add the buttermilk and mix until a sticky dough forms.
Lightly flour a work surface and tip the dough onto it.
Gently roll and fold the dough a couple of times to bring the mixture together. Do not knead.
Shape the dough into a ball. Flatten the ball gently with your hand. Score the dough with a deep cross dividing it into quarters. Dust the bread with flour.
Place onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake for 30 minutes at 200C/400F/Gas 6. The loaf should be golden-brown.
Leave to cool on a wire rack. This is best eaten on the day of baking.
