Soda farls are a favourite of my husbands. So at his request, they were made this morning. The recipe was suprisingly easy and they turned out really well, so I dear say we'll be seeing a lot more of them in the months to come!
225 g Soft (Plain) flour
4 g Bicarbonate of soda
7 g Cream of tartar
150 g Buttermilk
Sift all the dry ingredients into a bowl. Add the buttermilk and mix to a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and Knead lightly. Roll into a thick round (approx 10") and quater. Sprinkle a thick bottomed frying pan with flour and put on the hob at the highest setting. When the flour begins to brown, empty it out, give the pan a quick wipe and lower tempature. Place the soda farl quaters on the pan and cook until the bottom is nicely browned, turn and cook the other side for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Test by pressing the centre if very soft turn again and continue cooking until firm.
Split, butter and top with hot crisp bacon and fried egg or smoked salmon and sour cream, or indeed a breakfast topping of your choice, enjoy!
