This bread is so easy to make, it requires almost no kneading and it doesn’t need to raise either. Most importantly, it tastes amazing. ‘nough talking, Talk doesn’t fill the stomach.
Recipe adapted from Barefoot Contessa
4 C all-purpose flour, plus extra for kneading
4 Tbsp granulated sugar (I used 3 Tbsp)
1 tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp salt
4 Tbsp (1/2 stick) cold unsalted butter
1 ¾ C cold buttermilk, shaken
1 tsp grated orange zest (I didn’t add it because I didn’t have any on hand)
1 C dried currants (I also omitted this)
1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper
2. In a bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt, set aside.
