I begged this recipe from my co-worker when he 'accidentally' mentioned he had a great soda bread recipe. It was perfect timing, because St. Patrick's Day was only days away!

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together bread flour, salt, and baking powder until thoroughly combined. Beat in the butter, buttermilk, and confectioners' sugar to make a dough; gently mix in the onion and Cheddar cheese. Divide dough in half, and shape each half into a ball. Place the loaves onto the prepared baking sheet, and gently flatten to about 2 inches thick. Dust each loaf with flour.

  • Bake on a preheated oven until browned, about 30 minutes. Cool on racks for a few minutes; serve warm.

Cook's Note

To make into biscuits, increase the cheese and onion to 1 cup each. Form into drop biscuits on the parchment-lined sheet, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned on top and cooked through.
