Heat a heavy frying pan, griddle or cast-iron frying pan over medium-low heat.
Stir the flour and salt together in a bowl and sieve in the bicarbonate of soda. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk. Stir the mixture quickly together into a dough. Turn out onto a floured work surface. Knead the dough a few times, just until it comes together. Gently form the dough into a flattened, round cake about 1.25cm thick and cut the round into quarters with a floured knife.
Sprinkle a little bit of flour into the bottom of the hot frying pan and cook the wedges 6 to 8 minutes per side, until golden brown.
