Irish Soda Bread
Soda bread – crusty, wholemeal soda bread straight from the oven…with lashings of Irish butter.
I love all types of soda bread especially when missing home. If you want the recipe for Irish Wheaten Soda Bread you can grab it here.
One of my favourite combos is Soda Bread and Irish Beef Stew or Soda Bread and Farmhouse Vegetable Soup.
Soda bread is so tasty with cold meats, smoked salmon, cheeses and olives.
Soda bread is traditionally made with buttermilk and bicarb of soda or alternatively you can use a mixture of 50/50 yogurt and milk in place of buttermilk.
This recipe was inspired by Rachael, owner of Keane to Bake, who credits this recipe from a baking class she attended which was run by Irish chefs at former Irish Restaurant, 34Bia in Surry Hills, Sydney.
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
