It actually tastes pretty good - nutty with a sort of chewy, crispy crust. But I think a smaller tin would have produced a slightly deeper result more worthy of the terms "bread" or "loaf".

Today I tried Matthew Fort's "foolproof" soda bread recipe from last Saturday's Guardian magazine - recipe at Food for Fort. After tracking down some buttermilk in the new Waitrose, I only bought one pot, worried that I wouldn't get round to making the bread and would waste 2 pots if I bought the 2 the recipe actually required! So when I came to make it I had to halve the ingredients and guess the cooking time. Still the mixture looked too much for my small loaf tin so I used a bigger cake tin. Consequently it was a bit flat!
