    Recipe Information

    500g Plain Flour

    1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda

    1 tsp Salt

    1 tsp Sugar

    3 tsp Dried Oregano

    100g Feta Cheese, cut into small cubes

    100g Boiled Beetroot, cut into small cubes

    300ml Soured Cream

    100ml Milk


    Pre-heat the oven to 180°C Fan/Gas Mark 6.

    Place the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt, sugar and 2 tsp of the oregano into a mixing bowl and stir to combine.

    Stir in 75g feta cheese and the beetroot.

    Mix the soured cream and milk together.

    Make a well in the centre of the ingredients and pour in the soured cream mix.

    Stir to combine and use your hands or a round bladed knife to bring the mixture together to a soft dough – if the dough is too dry add a little more liquid and if it is too wet add a little more flour.

    Shape the dough into a ball and place on a greased and lined baking sheet.

    Flatten the top of the dough, cut a cross into it, then sprinkle with the remaining feta and oregano.

    Bake for 30-35 minutes until the soda bread is golden brown and cooked in the centre.

    Allow to cool a little on a wire rack and serve warm, cut into slices or wedges.
