“This bread was wonderful. Quick and easy with no rise time. A dense bread that would be a great company with any stew.”

rave reviews
Nana Dot's Irish Soda Bread - "Very good recipe! A lot like scones. I used my food processor to incorporate the butter which made it a lot faster."
Irish Soda Farls - "Great, simple recipe! If scones and Irish soda bread had a baby, this would be it. ;)"
Irish Brown Soda Bread - "YUMMY! It is moist and dense with a wonderful hearty flavor. Would be fantastic with a hunk of cheese or a nice stew, and is great with some real butter."

Irish Soda Bread

This dense, fine-crumbed bread is made of flour, buttermilk, baking soda, and salt. The leavener is baking soda, not yeast: the soda reacts with acid in buttermilk to form gas bubbles that make the bread rise. Once the dough is mixed and shaped, it goes in the oven immediately, so it's fast to make.


Something Sweet
Soda bread can be sweetened, if you like it sweet. But for a St. Patrick's Day dessert, bake a boiled fruit cake, fairy cakes, or tea cake.
