A farl is any of various roughly triangular flatbreads and cakes, traditionally made by cutting a round into four pieces. In Northern Ireland, the term generally refers to soda bread and potato bread or cakes. While soda bread can be made like normal breads, it is made into farls for use in the Ulster fry. A farl is a flat piece of bread about 3/4 inch thick with a rough quarter-circle shape. In Scotland today, the word is used less than in Northern Ireland, but a farl can be a quarter piece of a large flat scone, bannock, or oatcake. It may also be used for shortbread when baked in this particular shape.
