Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread


Traditional Irish soda bread consists of four main ingredients. Flour, baking sod, salt and buttermilk are the main ingredients but many recipes include fruit, sugar, and other items to sweeten it up. This recipe added a bit of honey for sweetness and caraway seeds as well.

4-3/4 cups Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Caraway Seeds
3 Tbsp Honey
1 Egg
1-1/2 cups Buttermilk
4 Tbsp Butter, Melted

To a bowl add together your dry ingredients; the flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix well.


Add in the caraway seed and combine.


Now add in the honey, egg, and buttermilk. Stir it up until a dough just begins to form.


Add in the melted butter and knead dough until all ingredients are combined. Don't over knead. Over kneading will make the dough tough and the bread dry


Form into a ball and cut a few 1" slits at the top.
Place dough on a baking sheet and place in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 50 min. to an hour.
Test with a toothpick in the center to assure loaf is cooked completely.

  3. This Irish soda bread recipe was passed on to me by a dear friend of my mother's who was born and raised in Ireland. It's the best Irish soda bread I have ever had. It is much higher, lighter and softer than most other recipes I have seen. It has an excellent flavor and texture, as well.
