Traditional Soda Bread

There are some recipes that are so good they survive many centuries. Irish soda bread is one of these recipes and it couldn’t be easier to make. Plus, the bonus to making this hearty bread is that you don’t need any yeast at all, which is pretty great news if your cupboard is lacking this baking essential.

Because this bread contains no yeast, it also doesn’t require any rise time. There’s no waiting, no kneading, and no punching down the dough. The quick prep time is just one more thing to love about soda bread.

You begin making this quick bread by mixing together the dry ingredients. Then you slowly add buttermilk until just combined. If you don’t have buttermilk you can make your own replacement by combining milk and vinegar at a ratio of 1 cup milk to 1 tablespoon white vinegar. Whole milk works best for this and the final result really does add that buttermilk flavor to baked goods.

The buttermilk also acts as a leavening agent for the bread, meaning that it will rise quite nicely in the oven. This type of bread also gets rise from baking soda, hence the name.
