Irish Soda Bread

Thanks for voting! You already voted!
Over a hundred years ago, the Irish in many parts of rural Ireland made bread using baking soda. This was because yeast wouldn't make dough rise unless strong flour, which was scarce in parts of Ireland, was used. So baking soda, when combined with something acidic (buttermilk), was effective in leavening bread.
