Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Combine dry ingredients thoroughly in large
 mixing bowl.
  3. Rub the softened butter into the dry ingredients to make a very fine crumb.
  4. Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk. Work the
 liquid into the flour mixture using a fork until the dough just comes 
together.
  5. Turn the dough out and knead a few times until the loose flour is just moistened. The dough will still be very wet and ragged.
  6. Form a loaf and place in a cast iron skillet. Score a deep cross
on top.
  7. Place in oven and bake until nicely
 browned and a knife or toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center, 40 to 45 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter if desired.
  9. Cool for at least 30 minutes 
before slicing. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
Recipe Notes

Use a cookie sheet if you don't have an iron skillet; however, the crust won't be as crunchy. Soda bread is best eaten the same day it's baked, but it will keep fairly well for a couple of days if covered tightly.
