This soda bread is a savory delicacy that you will love to have present at your dinner table on any night of the week. It takes very minimal hands-on time to prepare and with just a little over an hour of baking, it will practically be ready to serve.
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups buttermilk
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk together first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in center of mixture. Add buttermilk, eggs, and butter, whisking just until thoroughly blended. (Batter should be almost smooth.) Pour batter into 2 lightly greased 8 1/2- x 4 1/2-inch loaf pans.
Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Rotate pans in oven, and shield with aluminum foil. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife along edges of bread to loosen from pans. Remove from pans to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour).

The bread taste great and has a nice texture. I only baked the bread for 45 minutes. The tester came out clean and the bread was springy on top, so I knew it was done. I agree with the other reviewer. Bake for 20-25 minutes and then put the foil tent over to keep the bread from over browning.
I have made this recipe many times since I found it. Family loves it and have given it away to others. Have also shared the recipe numerous times and everyone else who makes it says it is easy and great !!
