Next, make a well in the middle of the dry mixture.

Using your hands, mix everything together until a soft dough forms. The dough should be a little bit sticky to the touch. If it is too dry, add a little bit of buttermilk, but don’t overwork the dough. Form the dough into a ball.

The soda bread is ready when it is brown, also turn the loaf over and gently tap the bottom; it should sound hollow if it is ready. If it isn’t, return it to the air fryer basket for a few more minutes.
