Kids in the Kitchen - Soda Bread

Welcome to this weeks kids in the kitchen.
Each week I write up a new post and let you know what my little chefs have been up to in the kitchen. I also have a linky and invite you to share what you have been cooking with your kids, or even your recipes for kids. Everyone that links up gets a mention on my social media channels and their post pinned on my Pinterest board which is a great place to visit for inspiration.

Follow Anne's board Kids In The Kitchen on Pinterest.

The linky is open for a month and you can join in as many times as you wish.

Soda Bread

As it was bread week on the Great British Bake off last week Boo was keen to make some bread. However, kids do get bored waiting for the dough to prove so we made some quick bread, or soda bread.


250g plain flour
250g wholemeal flour
1tsp salt 
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
about 400ml of buttermilk

If you don't have buttermilk you can add a tsp of lemon juice to milk and leave it at room temperature for at least 15 minutes.


Into a large bowl put all the dry ingredients and mix together
Make a well in the middle and add the butter milk, mixing it until you have a sticky dough and all the flour has been absorbed.
Tip the dough out and shape into a dome shape.
Put dough on a greased baking tray and cut a deep cross into the loaf.
Bake for about 30 minutes until golden and sounds hollow when tapped at the bottom.

Tips, Only add as much of the buttermilk as you need, as soon as all the flour is absorbed you have enough, don't make the dough too wet and sticky. If you really don't like the soda taste you could use just half tsp soda. This dough does not really need much kneading, just enough to bring it all together and shape the loaf.

So now it's over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you've cooked,
I'd also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
