White Soda Bread

This can be a plain bread or you can add caraway seeds and raisins (which makes it nicer, I think).

4 cups white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
raisins, to taste
caraway seeds, to taste

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Create a "well" in the center. Add buttermilk, drawing in flour mixture from the sides. If desired, add raisins (about 1 cup) and caraway seeds (about 1 - 2 tablespoons). Knead gently on a floured board. Form into a circle. Place on a baking sheet and cut a cross onto the top. Bake for 40 minutes at 400 degrees farenheit. Tap the bottom of the loaf when the 40 minutes are up. If it sounds hollow the loaf is done.

Time for tea!
