Soda Bread

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda

Pour the flour, salt, cream of tartar and baking soda into a bowl. Stir it together dry. Make a well in the middle.  Slowly add the buttermilk and stir and knead it until you have a workable dough.  Flour a flat surface to roll it out into a circle, about 1/2" thick.  Cut it into quarters.  Flour a flat skillet and place the wedge-shaped scones on the skillet over a low steady heat, and toast both sides and the edges until they are golden brown.  Split open and serve with margarine. You never ate anything better.  Serve with tea for best results.
