Irish Soda Bread

4 cups All Purpose Flour
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 3/4 cup Buttermilk


  • Preheat Oven to 425° F
  • In a large bowl combine the Dry Ingredients and make a well.
  • Slowly add the Buttermilk until a dough forms.
  • Place on the counter and gently knead, being sure not to overwork the dough.
  • Place in a greased heavy round cake pan or warm greased dutch oven.
  • Using a knife cut a cross along the top of the cake.
  • Bake covered for 30-35 minutes and then an additional 15 minutes uncovered.
  • Remove and allow to cool before serving.

NOTES: Traditional Irish Soda bread is plain and not sweetened like a cake or filled with raisins. Though I advocate adding both to give it flavor. Soda Bread also does not last that long, so eat it up in the first few days.
