Easy Irish Soda Bread

I make this Irish soda bread every year for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a quick and tasty recipe; a great addition to any Irish feast you may be preparing tomorrow! I’ll personally be eating Colcannon in addition to this bread and I can not wait! So delicious!

Here is the recipe! It’s best if made the day before eating! Enjoy!

*added note - many recipes call to add raisins. You can certainly add them here also, about a half cup would do.


3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup melted butter


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
Combine dry ingredients. Blend egg and buttermilk together and add to flour mixture. Mix until just moistened. * Stir in melted butter and then pour into prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 65-70 minutes or until toothpick inserted into bread comes out clean Cool on a wire rack. Wrap in foil, overnight, for the best flavor!

P.S. And just because they are so darn addictive and I HAD to make another batch... more cupcake bites!


  1. I may just have to go out and get some buttermilk tonight and try this! We are having dinner at my parents' house tomorrow (St. Patty's Day) and this would be so nice to bring with me to their house!

    The cupcakes are darling!

  2. I'm sure you won't be disappointed with this recipe..and it's so easy to make! Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day! :)
