This savory soda bread is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Use the herbs of your choice, but I love Herbs de Provence.
2 cups Flour
½ tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Kosher Salt
2 tbsp dried Herbs de Provence (or your herbs of choice)
4 oz shredded Parmesan cheese
1 cup Buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 425℉ (218℃)
Mix together the buttermilk and egg. Set aside.
Mix all of the other ingredients together in a bowl. Add the buttermilk mixture.
Stir the ingredients until all the flour is moistened. This will be a wet dough.
Form into a rough ball, and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. With wet hands pat the dough into a round ball.
Dust with a bit of flour and make a deep cross in the dough.
Bake for 25-35 minutes until golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
For an Italian-inspired loaf consider dried oregano, basil, and garlic. Use Parmesan or even Mozzarella cheese. If you use Mozzarella, you may want to add another 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt.
For a Mexican-inspired loaf consider smoked paprika, cumin, and Mexican oregano. For cheese try cheddar.
For an Indian-inspired loaf consider Garam Masala
