Wild Garlic Irish Soda Bread
Soda Bread is an amazingly easy, versatile recipe and has stood the test of time as an Irish classic because it so simple. It is a no knead, no fuss style of bread which is my kind of recipe!
You can change this classic by adding lots of tasty things like sea-salt, different cheeses, herbs but this time I added wild garlic! It’s delicious on its own or served with a warm bowl of soup.

How to Make Wild Garlic Irish Soda Bread
- Preheat the oven to 190°C. Grease and flour a 900g loaf tin.
- Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda, wild garlic and salt in a mixing bowl.
- In a Pyrex measuring jug, measure out the buttermilk and then whisk in the egg and honey.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and then pour in the wet mixture.
- Add a little extra flour if you find the dough is too wet and sticky.
- Using a wooden spoon, bring the mix together to form a dough. Shape into a rough oval and place in the loaf tin.
- Sprinkle with a little flour on top and bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
- The bread is cooked when you can turn it out on a wire rack, and when the bottom is tapped it should sound hollow.
- Allow to cool before slicing and enjoying with a little butter.
