soda / quick bread for bread machine

Hi Guys
as a baker of longstanding it pains me to ask this.....
but my wife cannot eat yeast so I bought her a cheap bread machine from Asda
(UK Wal-Mart), and got some complete Soda Bread mix from a baker's
sundriesman (Tegral mix from Puratos). This mix is OK, but I would like a
scratch recipe to play with.
Any suggestions please ?
Weights preferred but I can convert from cups, no good recipe refused.

got this from one of my many books, have not used this recipe yet so i would only try these ammounts to see if it is ok before making larger quantities. 8oz plain flour 1 teasp of bi-carb 2 teasps cream of tartar 2 teasps salt 12 oz wholemeal flour 1/2 pint of milk 4 tblsps water plain flour for sprinkling sift all dry ingrients together and add milk and water to make a soft dough.knead lightly then shape into a 2 inch deep round. place on floured sheet, cut a deep cross through centre and sprinkle with flour. bake in a hot oven at 220c--gas mark 7--for 25-30 mins. if you try this let me know how it turns out please. at present i buy one wholemeal soda bread every week from asda. as it only keeps for a couple of days before going mouldy i usually split it into four lots and freeze all but one lot which i use over the weekend. it freezes very well so homemade soda bread should do as well.if i get around to trying this i will probably halve the salt as some soda breads tend to be very salty and i think this ammount is a lot, much more than i put into normal batch bread making.

a.. 2 medium potatoes, sliced b.. 2 tablespoons white cornmeal c.. 5 tablespoons sugar d.. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda e.. 2 cups boiling water f.. 1 quart milk g.. Flour h.. 2 tablespoons salt i.. 1/2 cup melted shortening
Put potatoes, cornmeal, 2 table-spoons sugar and 1/8 teaspoon baking soda in a quart jar. Add boiling water. Put top on jar, but do not screw down.
Set in a warm place for 20 hours or until foam forms. Foam should be 1 inch thick and have a noticeable odor.
Scald milk; add 2 tablespoons sugar and remaining baking soda. Cool to lukewarm. Add 1 cup of liquid from jar and enough flour to make a medium dough.
Set in a warm place.
When the mixture has doubled in bulk, add salt, shortening and the remaining sugar. Knead well. Make into loaves. Place in greased pans and brush with melted shortening. Let rise about 3 hours in warm oven or until it doubles in bulk. Bake 1 hour in 350-degree oven. Makes 4 loaves (1 1/2 pounds each).

I went to a conference in Ireland a couple of weeks ago. The most wonderful soda bread was delivered every day to the conference centre. People broke off little bits and ate it like peanuts. My bread machine (Proctor-Silex model 80139) will make "quick bread", so I checked a bunch of soda bread recipes and tried the following.
3/4 cup sour milk (use buttermilk or put one teaspoon of lemon juice into the milk and give it one minute in the microwave). Actually, I thought the dough was too try while mixing and I added a couple of tablespoons of water. 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1 tablespoon oil 1 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
Set the machine for quick bread and let it go. The result was dense but very nutty in flavour. I might try it next time with half whole wheat and half white flour. I certainly intend to make it again.

Perhaps it sounds like sourdough, but the recipe doesn't call for yeast anywhere.

so I dont think a yeast based bread would not be wise for the OP, whether its packet yeast or a sourdough cultured yeast.
