- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour (or you can do all 4 cups all-purpose flour)
- 1 ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp Garlic salt
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp Parsley flakes (dried)
- Olive oil ½ cup
- 2 cups of buttermilk
Mix (1) to (7) together in a large mixing bowl.
Add about 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk and lightly mix, then add ½ cup olive oil and see if the dough binds. Use the last ½ cup of buttermilk as needed to get a soft (kind of sticky) dough. If you used up all the buttermilk and the dough seems tough, add water, one table spoon at a time as needed to get a dough consistency that is somewhat in between dough and paste.
Divide the dough into two halves. Make each a ball and put it in a well seasoned cast iron pan.
Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.
You know the bread is done when you can put a fork in the center and it comes out clean. Try not to over mix. You can first use a spoon gently to get everything combined and hand knead at the end.
It will be sticky but so worth it! I hope you enjoy this recipe and here are some pictures of my two loaves of Garlic and Herb Soda Bread.
