Irish Soda Bread Recipe–a simple recipe for a classic loaf

traditional Irish Soda Bread--so easy!With a name like Reiley I ought to know how to make a loaf of soda bread! Actually, I was taught this soda bread recipe by the owner of a pub in Ireland’s southwest. The key to this hearty loaf is high-quality, stone ground wheat flour. This kind of flour seems to be ubiquitous in Ireland but it’s definitely more rare on North American shores. It may take a little searching but the results are worth the effort.

Created by Amy Reiley

Ingredients

  • 3 c stone ground whole wheat flour
  • 1 c white flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 c buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Slowly add the buttermilk, stirring to combine, until you have a sticky dough.
  3. Knead the dough lightly before transferring to a lightly greased baking sheet.
  4. Shape the dough into a flattened round. Cut a cross into the top to release the fairies. (I was not aware that fairies live in bread dough but since I was instructed on this key step by an Irish baker, I'm sticking to it!)
  5. Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes. Bread will be golden on top and offer a hollow sound when tapped when it is fully cooked.
