This is an easy bread that most Irish families made fresh every couple of days depending on the size of the family. This recipe was from my Great Grandmother Sullivan who had 15 children!

How to Make Irish Soda Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Sift the flour, baking soda and powder into a bowl. Add in the sugar and raisins. Stir with a wooden spoon. Add in the buttermilk and form a dough.

Bake the bread for 35-40 minutes at 350°F.

  • 2*** Traditional is with raisins, but you can substitute craisins or dried cherries. Or... omit any fruit.
