Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

March 18, 2011 at 1:06 pm (Muffins/Breads)

Another find.  I was looking for a bread to go along with our St. Patrick’s Day Irish Beef Stew.  I chose this recipe over others as it seemed pretty straightforward, and didn’t have raisins, caraway seeds, or anything else that would creep the kids or hubby out.   The original contributor (Karin Christian) states that it is best if you make this several hours or a day ahead of time. 


Prep Time:  15 minutes   //   Cook Time:  1 hour, 10 min.    //   Ready In:  1 hour, 25 minutes

Serves 12 (small servings)  — Makes 1 – 9×5 inch loaf pan


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda. Blend egg and buttermilk together, and add all at once to the flour mixture. Mix just until moistened. Stir in butter. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 65 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the bread comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Wrap in foil for several hours, or overnight, for best flavor.
