Irish Soda Bread

Need a loaf of bread quick? This bread doesn’t have yeast and therefore it won’t take you all day to make it. In fact, it only has 4 ingredients!  What I loved the most about it, the crust is crisp.  This bread is best served with your favorite jam or preserves.

4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 cups buttermilk (I used reduced fat)

It was six years ago that I debuted these Santa Gingerbread Cookies on this blog.  You can find it at Santa Baby and here is the picture from back then.  These cookies have evolved slightly with the holly on the hat.

To make the hats, I used the below picture to make the template
