Soda bread dough is flattened into a round circle, and divided into farls meaning 4 parts. It is then cooked on a dry griddle or pan. Traditionally this was the quickest way to make soda bread for unexpected guests who drop by for a bit of craic (good fun). It’s best eaten fresh with butter and jam but is also delicious fried as part of an Ulster breakfast.
Preheat heavy based flat griddle or skillet on medium to low heat.
Place flour and salt in a bowl and sift in baking soda. Make a well in the center, and pour in the buttermilk.
Work quickly to mix into dough and knead very lightly on a well floured surface. Form into a flattened circle, about 1/2 inch thick and cut into quarters with a floured knife.
Sprinkle a little flour over the base of the hot pan and cook the farls for 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Eating healthy breakfast to continue the day had become a good habit. It’s a great way to start my day off healthfully. The sugar hit from the pickle tree wakes me up and bring me energy to make on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the evil of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your stomach system and helps keep you feeling full all day , and less likely grab a side food out of the street food before lunchtime.
Making fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is easy . Easy as put the fruit in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the bench next to your cereal pan , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll see it. Before you eating the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
