Soda Bread

8 ounces wheat flour
8 ounces self-rising flour
10 -14 fluid ounces unsweetened plain yogurt

1 tablespoon olive oil


1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
Soda Bread Cont.
Directions:

Grease and flour a 8" (20cm) cake tin (high walls are better but not necessary.).

Preheat oven to 190C/375F or 180C/350F if using a fan assisted oven.

Sieve self-rising flour with bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. (It is important to
sieve the bicarbonate of soda with the self-rising flour, if it is added at a later stage it will give the bread a
greenish tinge!).

Add the wheat flour to the bowl (no need to sieve).

In a jug mix the yogurt, honey and olive oil then pour onto the flour mixtures in the bowl.

Stir with a wooden spoon until well mixed and a soft sticky dough is formed.

Flour a surface for kneading and knead lightly (20 turns max). Form into a round shape, this does not have to
fit the tin as it will spread when cooking.

Transfer to the floured cake tin and with a knife cut a cross across the top and place in the oven for 45
minutes. (The cutting of the cross helps to portion the bread for slicing in quarters.).
