Irish Soda Bread

I just thought I’d share my recipe – it’s so easy and doesn’t require yeast (which is like unicorn poo here and I’m guessing it’s the same everywhere!). I’ve been using this recipe for years and it’s foolproof!

1lb flour – just use plain flour or half plain and half wholemeal – either is delicious

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp salt

300ml milk (ideally buttermilk but if not just ordinary whole or semi skimmed milk and you can add a drop of lemon juice to ordinary milk, but you don’t have to!)

3 fl oz lukewarm water

Chuck it all in a bowl and mix up with a fork. Don’t knead or mix too much. Shape into a 7 inch round and place on a greased baking tray. Cut a deep cross on the top and sprinkle with a little flour. Cook on 200 degrees for 30 minutes then turn upside down and give it another 5-10 minutes.

You can also add some fried onion and bacon bits to the dough before baking – extremely naughty but takes it to another level!

Then the only tough thing is trying to resist eating massive chunks of it while it’s still hot!

We didn’t resist today … half gone already 😂
