I used this recipe a few weeks ago, with my corned beef and cabbage dinner. It was easy and absolutely delicious! I used my Lodge cast iron pot to bake it in and it just couldn't have turned out better. I intend to make this bread more often than just once a year!

How To Make irish soda bread

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 425 F. degrees. Lightly grease and flour a cake pan or cast iron pot. In a large bowl, sieve and combine all the dry ingredients. Add the buttermilk to form a sticky dough. Add raisins. Place on floured surface and lightly knead (too much allows the gas to escape.) Shape into a round flat shape in a round cake pan or cast iron pot and cut a cross in the top of the dough. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes. The bottom of the bread will have a hollow sound when tapped to show it is done.
