A deliciously savory spin on a traditional soda bread flecked with cheddar and scallions is St. Patrick's Day ready!
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and grease the bottom of a ceramic dutch oven (or a non-greased cast iron skillet if you prefer) with 1 Tbsp butter.
In a large bowl stir together the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, scallions and cheddar cheese.
Transfer to the prepared pan and cut a shallow cross in the center of the bread. Brush with the melted butter and sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
Cool slightly, cut into wedges, and serve with butter if desired.
