Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Authentic Irish Soda Bread)

Hello again friends and food lovers. Welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. To kick of the month of March I have a recipe for a delicious Irish Soda Bread as a sort of celebration of St Patrick’s Day this month. I imagine I will have at least 1 or 2 more Irish recipes for you this month. So from what I’ve been told this Irish Soda Bread recipe is about as authentic as they come. I know that a lot of Irish dishes like Soda Bread and Colcannon are made slightly different depending on what county in Ireland it comes from and I don’t know what county this recipe comes from but I’m told it’s authentic. Personally, I’ve tried lots of different Soda Breads and this is probably one of the best ones I’ve ever had. I love this recipe as well because it’s super simple to make. In fact, this would be a great recipe to make with children. On a side note, the dough with be slightly damp and sticky after kneading it but it’s supposed to be that way so you don’t need to throw anymore flour at it. Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think in the comments below and as always, be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you aren’t already so you don’t miss a single new post.

Authentic Irish Soda Bread

  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Distilled White Vinegar
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tbsp White Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

1. In a small bowl, stir together the milk and vinegar and allow to stand until curdled, about 10 minutes.
2. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C); grease a baking sheet.
3. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
4. Gradually stir the soured milk into the flour mixture just until the dough comes together then turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface.
5. Knead the dough a few times, and shape it into a round loaf, then place it onto the prepared baking sheet; with a sharp knife, cut an X into the top of the dough to release steam and help the bread keep its round shape as it bakes.
6. Bake the bread in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
