One of the most memorable foods from my childhood, both in Ireland and the US, was fresh soda bread.  This was a part of my culture, but more importantly it was something done as a family.  I remember making it with my mother, and being around when it was made by my aunts and grandmother, and it is something I continued to make with my own kids.  This is a simple bread, with little fuss, and no long lead times for rising. Buttermilk is becoming much easier to get hold of in the UK these days, but I do remember visiting my aunt in Reading a few years ago and finding she had a ready supply of whole milk soured with a spoonful of lemon juice on hand for her bread-making.
