In the Kitchen, Recipe

>Recipe: Irish Soda Bread

>I love Irish Soda Bread. It’s hearty and thick and a little heavy. It’s the perfect companion for a heart soup or chili. Maybe it was today’s dip back into winter, but I just felt like making it. The best part of this recipe is that it’s all ingredients that are always in my kitchen.

1 lb flour (this recipe is normally made with whole wheat flour, but I use whatever I have. About 4.5 cups)
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
2/3 cup plain yogurt 
1 tsp salt
(You can use 1 2/3 cup of buttermilk instead of the milk, lemon juice and yogurt. But I never have buttermilk in the house)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Whisk together milk, lemon juice and yogurt and let sit for 10 minutes. 
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. 
  4. Make a well in the flour mixture and slowly pour in the milk mixture. Combine by pulling flour from the edges into the middle to form a soft, not sticky, dough. 
  5. Turn the dough on to a lightly floured surface and knead for five minutes or until smooth. 
  6. Shape dough into an 8″ round and place on a greased baking sheet. With a sharp knife, cut a deep cross on the top of the dough. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Cool slightly on a wire rack before serving.
