Irish Soda Bread


This was the simplest bread recipe I’ve ever tried.  With five basic ingredients you can’t go wrong.  Flour, salt, sugar, baking soda, and buttermilk is all it takes.

combine the ingredients until you have a ball of dough.

With big cuts in the dough, this loaf is in the oven and ready to bake.


The bread is ready in short order.

My dad used to make bread on Sunday night.  He would combine the ingredients and leave the loaves to rise a while.  Then when they were ready he would bake 6 loaves.  We had fresh bread around the house for years.  His recipes were more involved that the Irish Soda Bread I’ve made here.


Still warm this sliced soda bread is a treat to have with dinner or just butter.



Delightfully simple and deeply satisfying.
