    About this recipe: If you would like to make soda bread but don't want to heat up the oven, this recipe is perfect. Sort of like drop scones, these soda bread wedges are pan-fried on a frying pan or griddle.

    Serves: 8 

    • 300g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 475ml buttermilk, or as needed

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat a frying pan or flat griddle to medium-high, about 180 degrees C. Stir the flour, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda together in a large bowl until well combined.
    2. Stir in the buttermilk, 100ml at a time, until the mixture forms a very sticky ball of dough. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface, and knead gently 8 to 10 times. Pat the dough into a circle about 3cm thick, and cut the circle into quarters.
    3. Place the wedges onto the preheated griddle and cook until the bottom is golden brown, about 15 minutes; turn over and cook the other side until golden, another 10 to 15 minutes. A skewer inserted into the centre of a wedge should come out clean. Stand the wedges on a wire rack to cool, then cut each wedge in half and slice horizontally for serving.
