Soda Bread 


Hot off the griddle for breakfast or add a handful of currants or raisins and eat with a cup of tea. 


1lb soda bread flour 

2oz caster sugar 

2oz butter 

1 egg 

Approx 250ml buttermilk 


  • Cut butter into flour until mixture resemble breadcrumbs 
  • Add sugar, make a well and add beaten egg and enough milk to make a stiff but pliable dough 
  • Roll out to 1cm and either cut into squares or cut with cookie cutter, and place on medium griddle and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, if the dough is wetter it will take longer 
  • Serve hot or cold with butter! 




Fadge – potato farls 

Never throw out left over mash again – buttery and salty – heaven!! 



1lb hot mashed potatoes 

2oz plain flour 


  • Make sure potatoes are mashed and seasoned while still hot. 
  • Allow to cool slightly then mix in flour and leave until cool enough to handle 
  • Roll out on a well floured surface, cut and then place on a medium griddle for 3 minutes on each side until cooked through. 


Apple Fadge – an Armagh Delicacy and my favourite 


Once the potato mixture has been rolled into a round, spread half a cooking apple, thinly slice over 1 half of the round, fold over and seal, place on a baking tray and cook in a hot oven 180° for approximately 25 minutes until golden and cooked through, you might have to turn over half way through cooking. When fully cooked butter and eat hot, Give it a go – I promise you will thank me later!!
