  • 3 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add buttermilk, and combine until it forms a loose ball.
  • Turn dough out onto floured work surface. Knead until a smooth ball forms, about 5 minutes. Don't over knead, or bread will become dense and tough.
  • Place dough onto baking sheet or into oven safe skillet. Coat with additional flour, and score an "X" shape in the top of bread. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden and crisp.
  • Cool for 15 minutes before slicing.
