Chedder-Scallion Soda Bread

billy haze


This savory soda bread has a light texture reminiscent of yeast bread,but is made in fraction of the time.Buttermilk is used here for its tang as well as its acidity(which activates the leavening power of the baking soda).If you dont' want to buy a whole carton of buttermilk,you can substitute soured milk.Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of vinegar or lemon juice to 1/2 cup of milk and let it stand for five minutes
