Total Time 38minutes
3-2/3cupall-purpose flourplus a little more for dusting (if it still looks too wet after mixing, add more flour in 1/4 cup increments, adding no more than 1 additional cup total- mixing in between each addition.)
1tspkosher or sea salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Lay a sheet of parchment paper over baking sheet. Set aside.
Mix flour, salt & baking soda together in mixer bowl.
Make a well in the center- pour in your buttermilk.
Mix with the paddle attachment of your mixer or you can kneed in by hand until the dough is soft. Should be fairly wet but not sticky.
Turn dough on lightly floured surface & kneed 3-4 times to smooth.
Shape into flat circle - mine was about 1-2 inches thick but still flat in shape.
Place on prepared parchment lined sheet & cut a cross from edge to edge on top.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden. When it sounds hollow when tapped- it's ready.
**If you don't have buttermilk (which I didn't) you can put 1-3/4 tbsp vinegar in measuring cup & then fill the rest with regular milk until you reach 1-3/4 cup. Let sit for 5 minutes before mixing in.
