Our Irish Soda Farls Recipe is a soda bread dough that`s flattened into a round circle, and divided into farls meaning 4 parts. It is also referred to as Irish Griddle Bread because it`s cooked on a dry griddle or pan lightly sprinkled with flour. Traditionally this was the quickest way to make soda bread for unexpected guests who drop by for a bit of craic (good fun). It`s best eaten fresh with butter and jam.
