Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread
Time: about 45 minutes

Ingredients
About 1 1/2 cups buttermilk or plain yogurt,
or 1 1/2 cups milk and 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
(see step 2 below)
4 cups (about 18 ounces) all-purpose flour or 2 cups
all-purpose flour and 2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
Butter or canola or other neutral oil
for greasing the baking pan

Directions
1.  Preheat the oven to 375˚F.
If you are using buttermilk or yogurt, ignore this step. If you are not,warm the milk gently-1 minute in the microwaves is sufficient, just enough to take the chill of-and add the vinegar. Let it rest while you prepare the other ingredients
This is easy enough dough to handle by hand, but it’s even easier in a food processor: Combine all the dry ingredients and process(or stir) to combine. Add enough milk or yogurt to make a soft but not- too-sticky dough.Process for 30 seconds in the food processor knead about 3 minutes by hand;the dough will be smooth and elastic. Let the dough rest for a few minutes.
Butter a baking sheet or baking pan and shape the dough into a round loaf. Slash the top with a razor blade (see illustrations on page 266) Bake for at least 45 minutes, or until the loaf is golden brown and sounds hollow when you thump the bottom (it’s internal temperature will be about 200˚ F) Let cool thoroughly.  This bread does not keep well; plan to eat it within a day of making it.  Store wrapped in waxed paper.
