Classic Irish Soda Bread #TwelveLoaves

Classic Irish Soda Bread #TwelveLoaves

I’m so happy and exited to share with all of you this recipe because is the first time for me that I made anything like this bread. I have try soda bread before and I love it, it is so easy to make and delicious, the mixture of sweet and salty has been my favorite always and this bread is all of that.

And this month I’m truly happy because I was able to make it and thanks to our host Heather from All Roads Lead to the Kitchen for bringing the St. Patrick’s Day theme to our table.

Ok, like I said before it is truly an honor and a challenge all at the same time, I want it to make the classic soda bread but also add some of my personal touch, specially because I want for you to see that in any recipe we can add our touch and it will be very delicious.

Of course you have to respect the original recipe. I make a couple of changes that where super delicious, I add some lemon zest and change the raisins with currants, which are pretty similar but smaller.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, lemon zest, and salt, cut the butter into the mixture with a pastry blender until you have fine crumbs. Add the currants to it.
  2. Add just enough buttermilk, until the dough leaves the side of the bowl. Place in a lightly flour surface and knead for 2 minutes, shape in to a round loaf. Place in a baking sheet cover with parchment paper and cut an X shape, brush with butter and bake until golden brown.

  • All That’s Left Are The Crumbs

    Kathia, I totally agree with honoring a recipe, but making little adjustments to make it your own. I think you have made a wonderful loaf and I love that you added some zest and currants rather than raisins.

  • What a beautiful loaf

  • Kathia, this bread sounds wonderful! Love that you added currants to the recipe. I have actually never made Irish Soda Bread, but I cannot wait to try it!

  • This looks delicious! I really want to try making bread one day soon.

  • Noemi Daradics

    Who doesn’t love a good home made bread? Yum! Reminds me of my childhood!

  • Yum! My grandma makes this all the time, it’s delicious!

  • Mmm, I love Irish Soda Bread! YUM!

  • This looks incredible. I am not really great at baking at all but this recipe makes me want to give it another go.

  • Karen

    It sure looks amazing and I love your adaptations!

    This Irish soda bread is almost like the one I use. Luck of the Irish to you.

  • I’ve never made soda bread from scratch but this sounds and looks delicious!

  • My English mother in law bakes with currants frequently and on her recent visit she left plenty behind for me to use. I’ll have to incorporate them into a bread like yours. Really nice!

  • This looks delicious, Kathia. I add currants to my soda bread, as well – I like their size for breads. I’ll have to try with some lemon zest next time, that sounds tasty.
