I made a loaf of Irish Soda Bread this morning, following James Beard's recipe for the all-white flour version. I never buy buttermilk, so I typically either use milk that's starting to go sour, or sour regular milk with lemon juice. Aside from that, it's Beard's recipe.
Evidently, I did not slit the cross on the top to a uniform depth before I baked it. The result was hilarious. It looks like an alien skull.
