  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt or 2 1/4 tsp table salt
  • 1 1/2 cup buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • In large bowl whisk together your flour, baking soda and salt. Add in your buttermilk and stir until it just comes together.
  • Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead until it forms a smooth ball. Dust the outside with flour and place on an un-greased baking sheet. Use a sharp knife to slash a 1 inch deep cross on top of the loaf.
