Traditional Irish Soda Bread (3 Points Plus)

Traditional Irish Soda Bread (4 Points Plus)

Makes 1 Loaf – Cut into 12 Wedges

Traditional Irish Soda Bread


  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 cups 1% Buttermilk

In a large bowl whisk together sugar, baking soda and salt.  Make a well in the middle of the flour and add the buttermilk, all at once.

Use your hands to mix buttermilk into flour to form a soft dough.  Turn dough onto lightly floured surface.  Gently knead just a few times to make a smooth ball.

Place loaf onto parchment-lined or greased baking sheet.  With sharp knife, score a large “X” on the top of the dough.

Bake in the centre of the oven for about 35 mins.

The loaf is done when browned and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.  Serve warmed with butter and honey.

Spotted Dog Variation

Add 1 cup of raisins or currants and 1 tsp Caraway Seeds to the flour.
