Irish Soda Bread

Soda bread is a bread that doesn't need yeast or time to rise so it's great if you're in a hurry. What makes it rise is the baking soda and the buttermilk. When you mix them together, they start to react and bubble a bit. 
Irish Soda bread is perfect for dunking in soups or stews. Great warm with butter or jam. 

This is a recipe I found on  and it is very good and simple.


3 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup melted butter


  1. Preheat Oven to 325 F (165 C) and grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, granulated sugar, salt, and baking soda. 
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the egg and buttermilk and add it to the dry ingredients. Mix until just moistened
  4. Add in melted butter and stir
  5. Pour into pan
  6. Bake for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
