Soda Bread Recipe
Soda bread is simple, which do not require yeast to expand and grow in the oven. As the name suggests, we are using baking soda in the recipe which works with buttermilk and helps the bread to expand/grow/rise in the oven. The bread is delicious, it is gorgeous and it is easy to bake in the home kitchen.

Add in the seeds, nuts, dried berries and mix all.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and add the egg and buttermilk. (refer to the above article if not using egg)
Using an open hand bring the flour and liquid together to a loose dough. The dough should be quite soft, but not too sticky.
Turn onto a lightly floured work surface and gently bring the dough together into a roundabout of 8 inches with 1 and 1/2 inch of height.
Use a bench scraper https://amzn.to/342JtmE to lift the shaped bread and place in on the prepared baking tray.
Score the bread with a deep cross on top using a sharp knife. Brush the top of the bread with egg wash and sprinkle few seeds and oats on the top.
