Bake Off Week 3 - Bread Week

We're now into week 3 of my Bake Off obsession and it just so happens to be a perfect week for me. I eat out a lot with colleagues on away jobs and after the first couple of nights they always seem to pick up on just how much bread I eat - so much so that a current lunch invite in my calendar says 'tbd, but there will be bread...'.

I once again took the easy route out as I don't fancy my bread sculpting skills to be that good. I have made bread before, but only ever from a pre-made mix, so this was a bit of a novelty.

Quick bread was the first challenge of the week so I went for Soda Bread, which turned out to be ridiclously easy to make. I used the Telegraph recipe for Soda Bread.

I had no idea where to buy buttermilk, but it turns out it's in the dairy section pretty much anywhere - who knew?

Make a well in the middle...

Knead away!

Just before the oven...

Ta da!

I'm happy to say, it tastes really really good - I'm very pleased with how this has turned out!

Have you tried soda bread before? How are your bread making skills?
