Yumm..Fresh Bread!

Irish Soda Bread, 

Does that sounds difficult? Think again! It’s super easy. Even for someone like me, who views recipes more like guidelines rather than rules to follow. Now, I’ll admit, what I made might not be the ‘real’ thing but it sure tasted great!sillysquirrels, homemade bread, irish soda bread, soaking homemade bread, bread recipe, homemade bread recipe, soaking flour recipe, soaking bread recipe, rye bread recipe, whole wheat/rye recipe

Irish Soda Bread

  • Servings: 1 loaf
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


1. Coconut Oil (or butter or another oil, just for greasing your baking pan)

2. 3 1/4 Cup Flour- I used a mix of rye and whole wheat flour but you could use all purpose as well or a combo of gluten free flours such as 2 Cups Buckwheat and 1 1/4 Tapioca 

3. 1 Tsp Salt

4. 1 Tsp Baking Soda

5.  1 3/4 Cups of Buttermilk



  • Mix All ingredients together in a bowl until it forms a dough and then pour it onto a floured surface and kneed until it’s smooth- NOT sticky anymore- adding more flour as necessary
  • Grease your baking sheet
  • Shape the dough into a thick circle, about 1.5-2 inches thick, place it on the baking sheet and cut a criss cross in the top with a knife
  • Bake it in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 350F (but you might need more or less time depending on the oven)

Notes: I pre-soaked my flour in the buttermilk overnight before using it in this recipe. Why soak flour? Well, you can read all about it here
