Rosemary and Cheddar Irish Soda Bread

Irish soda bread is another recipe you find close to St. Patrick's Day.  It is a different kind of bread.  Main thing is no yeast.  This was a different type of soda bread, it has cheese and rosemary in it.  It turned out really good.  I think next time I will half the recipe.  It made one big loaf of bread. 
It turns out so pretty.  The recipe said you could bake it in a cast iron skillet too.
Cream of tartar is the one ingredient you might not expect.
Start with 4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
The recipe called for 3 Tablespoons fresh rosemary, mine died during the cold winter so I used 1 Tablespoon dried.
2 cups buttermilk
1 egg
4 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
Add the wet ingredients to the dry.
Then add the cheese
Mix well.  It will look like a muffin batter.
Turn out on a lightly floured surface.
Spread some flour on a baking sheet.
Lightly knead the dough.  It is very sticky.
Transfer to the baking sheet.
You can't tell but cut a cross on top of the bread.  Place in a preheated 425 oven.  Bake for 30-35 minutes.

Cut while warm and add some butter.  Nothing better than some warm bread and butter.
