Cheese and Onion Soda Bread

150g red leicester cheese, grated
500g plain flour
400ml buttermilk (I made my own as had none at home. 2 cups whole milk mixed with 4 tablespoons white vinegar or lemon juice. Mix and leave for 10 minutes)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon black pepper, optional

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Line a baking tray with wax paper.
Mix the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda together.
Add the buttermilk and use a knife to bring together.
Flour your hand and mix until it comes together.
Add the cheese and onion mix well and bring in to a ball.
Lightly flour the work surface and shape into a ball and place onto the prepared tray.
Cut a cross into the dough, deep but careful not to go all the way through.
Bake for 45 minutes.
Serve warm with real butter…delicious.

Soda bread is quick and easy and you can add any flavour you like or just go plain. Seriously good. Enjoy.
