Easy Irish Soda Bread


I love bread. But the process requires a lot of planning. If only there was a recipe for quick bread…But wait–there is! In walks Irish Soda Bread…

This bread takes at most 20 minutes to assemble, and 1 hour to bake. A perfect bread to whip up last minute when you have company over.


Easy Irish Soda Bread
This recipe for quick bread is by far the easiest in the world. No kneading is required which is great for beginner bread makers! Slices taste great with a light smear of butter or drizzle of honey. Also perfect for ham and cheese sandwiches!
  1. 3 cups all-purpose flour (or 2 cups all purpose + 1 cup whole wheat flour)
  2. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  3. 1/3 cup white sugar (I reduced to 1/4 cup)
  4. 1 teaspoon salt (I reduced to 3/4 tsp)
  5. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 1 egg at room temperature, lightly beaten
  7. 2 cups buttermilk (I used 2% milk)
  8. 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a loaf pan.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients.
  3. Mix egg and buttermilk together, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened.
  4. Stir in butter (make sure the butter is cooled completely before adding! Otherwise it will scramble the eggs). Pour into prepared pan.
  5. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean (I baked mine for 55 minutes which was perfect). Cool on a wire rack in pan.
  1. Wrap in foil for several hours, or overnight, for best flavor.
  2. Due to the moistness of this bread, store in the refrigerator.
