No yeast is needed for this irresistible Irish soda bread from Emeril Lagasse.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups bleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

    Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and black pepper in a large mixing bowl and stir to mix. Add the buttermilk and mix gently with a fork. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Gently fold the edges into each other four times, turn once, then pat the dough out into a circle out nine inches in diameter and about one inch thick. With a sharp knife, make two large slashes in the shape of a cross on the top.

    Lightly grease a 2 x 10-inch round cake pan with the vegetable oil. Place the dough in it and sprinkle the top with the bacon. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees and bake until the bread is brown and sounds hollow when thumped with your fingers, about another 25 minutes.

    Remove from the oven, then remove the bread from the pan and let cool on a wire rack before slicing to serve.
