I think you have to be very careful when making soda bread not to overdo the bicarbonate of soda.  It must be exact to the recipe.  Mine says one level tsp.  Don't know if this helps BS – hope it does.   Ok

I've heard that you must make sure the bicarb of soda isn't old as well as apparently this can quite radically affect it's effectiveness in recipes.  Overdoing it can make it taste bitter I think.

One site I saw recommended buying new soda every 3 months regardless. 

I love baileys!  Heart  Try some in hot choc on a really miserable night.  Laugh

Back to topic – has anyone else here tried cottage cheese with 'bits' in – ie herbs, ground black pepper etc.  Is it best to add these to the milk at the start of after you've separated the curds from the whey?  If added at the start would they incorporate to the curds or stay and be lost in the whey?
