  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius
  2. Line a baking plate with baking paper.
  3. Sift the flour, baking soda, sugar and salt into a bowl.
  4. Stir in the cranberries and rosemary and make a hole in the center.
  5. Add the buttermilk and while you use a large spoon, mix everything quickly and carefully together to get a nice dough. (if necessary, add an extra dash of buttermilk until the dough is sticky.)
  6. Knead the dough lightly and flour the surface.
  7. Form the dough in a round bread of about 15 cm diameter.
  8. Put the breadon the baking sheet and with a sharp knife make a cross in the dough.
  9. Put the bread in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 200 degrees Celsius and bake for another 20-25 minutes until the bread is golden brown.
  10. Check whether the bread is sufficiently cooked by tapping on the bottom, it should sound hollow, otherwise you extend the baking time by 2-3 minutes.
