Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 32 mins
Servings 1 loaf

Ingredients
  

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour — 451 grams
  • 1 teaspoon salt — 7 grams
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda — 5 grams
  • 1 + 3/4 cup buttermilk — 416 ml
  • 1 cup raisins — 120 grams
  • caraway seeds are optional

Instructions
 

  • Sift the all-purpose flour and add the rest of the ingredients.
  • Stir it and then switch over to your hands. You don’t need to knead it but mix it well and combine it until a nice dough ball forms.
  • Place the dough ball on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and flatten it until it’s 1-2 inches in thickness. Score the top and optionally you can brush it with some egg- wash which consists of 1 whisked egg + 1 tablespoon of water to get that golden crust.
  • Bake in a preheated 425F oven for 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 400F and bake for another 25-30 minutes. Keep an eye on it as the timing will depend on the oven. Enjoy

Notes

You can make your own buttermilk with 2 cups of regular milk + 4 tablespoons lemon juice and use 1 + 3/4 cups of that for the recipe. Stir the milk gently with the lemon juice and let it sit and curdle for 5-10 minutes. Be sure to also level out the flour and baking soda with a knife so you don’t add too much. You do not want to add more baking soda as you can really taste it if you overdo it. I have not tried this recipe with a plant-based milk but let me know if you have. It works with whole-wheat flour but it will be more dense or you can even make it with 1/2 all-purpose and 1/2 whole-wheat. Caraway seeds are optional inside and so are oats on top. Let it cool completely and wrap it nicely. It is perfect toasted in a toaster oven or a toaster with some butter on top.

  1. I made the bread using the same measurements except I had to add half a cup of all purpose flour to the almond flour I was using because the dough was a little sticky at the end. I curled almond milk with the recipe instructions and it worked , the milk was bubbly and sour, I also used cranberries instead of raisins because that’s what I had.
    I am not a baker and this recipe was sooooooo easy and very delicious. Thank you @themodernnonna✅

  2. 5 stars
    I made this Irish Soda Bread for St. Patrick’s Day and didn’t have buttermilk so I used regular milk with lemon like suggested. It worked like a charm. I didn’t have any raisins either so I used dryed cranberries. So good!
