Makes 4 Servings


  • 3 1/2 cup plain white flour
  • 1 teaspoon bread soda or bicarbonate of soda
  • 6 fluid ounce water or milk
  • 4 ounce yogurt
  • 4 ounce plain flour


Baking Directions:

Mix together the flour and bread soda or bicarbonate of soda in a mixing bowl.

Pour in your chosen liquid and the yogurt, mixing with a palette knife (strange, I know, but it works), until you have a soft, dry dough.

You can shape the farls as you please, but the traditional way is to form the dough into a ball and then roll it out into a circle just under 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick and divide into quarters.

Place a heavy-bottomed frying pan over a medium heat and sprinkle lightly with flour.

When it starts to brown, place a farl in the pan and cook for 5–6 minutes per side until lightly browned.

Remove the farl, sprinkle some more flour into the pan and cook the rest in the same way.

Keep in a warm place until you’re ready to eat them.
