Irish Soda Bread Recipe
- 2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 3½ TSP Baking Powder
- 1 TSP Baking Soda
- 1 TSP Salt
- 1 ¼ - 1 ½ cups Yogurt (plain unsweetened)
- 1 TBS Olive Oil (vegetable oil works fine as well)
- 1 TBS Honey
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
- Add the yogurt, oil, and honey to the bowl and mix well. You may need to use your hands to get all of the ingredient incorporated completely.
- Flour a clean counter-top and knead the Irish Soda Bread dough slightly for about 30 seconds. Form into a nice round shape. Grease a cake pan and place the round dough into the center of pan. Cut a shallow X shape on the top of the round dough using a sharp knife or bread knife. Bake the bread at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes.
- Serve warm! Top with butter once you remove from the oven or your favorite jam.
**Fun Facts! – Irish Soda Bread began popping up in the mid-19th century when baking soda first became available for use as a raising agent. Easier and cheaper than traditional yeast. Also, traditional recipes call for buttermilk. However, in some recipes, the buttermilk is replaced by live yogurt (as I did here) or even stout. Which is on my to-do list!
