GG Recipe Box: Soda Bread


The unique texture of soda bread is a result of the reaction between the acidic sour milk and baking soda, which formed small bubbles of carbon dioxide in the dough. The shape of soda bread is also steeped in tradition

  • 4 C flour
  • 4 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 C softened Margarine
  • 1 c  Buttermilk
  • 1 egg 
  • 1/4 C buttermilk
  • 1/4 C butter, melted 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

  •  mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and margarine. Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk and egg. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead slightly. Form dough into a round and place on prepared baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine melted butter with 1/4 cup buttermilk; brush loaf with this mixture. Use a sharp knife to cut an ‘X’ into the top of the loaf.
  • Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Check for doneness after 30 minutes. You may continue to brush the loaf with the butter mixture while it bakes.
