Unemployment Bread

Still unemployed but need to bring something to a dinner party? Would you really enjoy something for breakfast other than $1 store cereal? Then meet unemployment bread! This recipe is from my grandma and our family in Ireland. Its a traditional old Irish recipe my mother and I like to nerdily imagine them making on a skillet over a fire...and it is SO DELICIOUS and SO EASY you will love it!! Bonus: requires few ingredients, most you (or your parents) already have in your cupboards. Win.

Irish Soda Bread
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup to 1 1/3 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt (the only odd ingredient! And its cheap!)

Mix together everything and make a round ball, kneed a few times to get rid of stickiness. Flatten somewhat with a rolling pin and cut into four parts. Sprinkle flour on a frying pan and heat. Place the parts on for 10 minutes each side. (until they're a nice light brown). Remove and cool on wire rack. Good warm or cold!

The ingredients.

The flatten.

The cooking.

Now you're ready to go to your party where everyone thinks you are just little Miss Suzy Homemaker, when really you're just unemployed.

Don't have too many more days of this unemployment gig though, things are happening!
