Scottish Soda Bread aka Fife Bannock
A Fife Bannock is a form of yeast free soda bread and is super easy to make either on the hob or in the oven
preheat oven to 180C if using and grease a baking tray
Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar, salt and sugar into a large bowl
Add the oatmeal and mix well and rub in the butter
Add as much of the buttermilk or plain yogurt as you require to form a dough
Turn dough out on to a lightly floured surface and knead briefly
Pat it into a round shape and press down till it is about 1cm thick all over and make a deep cross to form quarters
If baking place on prepared baking tray and into oven for approximately 15 minutes or until golden and a skewer comes out clean
If using the hob place your bannock either in a hot girdle/griddle or in a flying pan (or hotplate of Aga) and brown on underside the turn over and do the other side
cool on a wire rack
You can make this simple soda bread either on the hob in a heavy-based pan or in the oven.
I use plain flour for this recipe though you could use a mix of plain and wholewheat flour if you prefer.
