Brown Soda Bread

Brown Soda Bread


Serves: 8

  • 1lb coarse whole wheat flour
  • 6 oz plain white flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ pint buttermilk (approx.)


Preparation method

Prep: 5 mins       | Cook: 45 mins

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Prepare a baking tray by dusting lightly with plain flour.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients, then add the buttermilk, gently stirring until just mixed together. If the dough feels stiff or dry, add a bit more buttermilk. It should be a fairly soft and wet dough
  3. Form into a round on the baking tray, then cut a cross in the top with a buttered knife.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes, or until bread is browned, and sounds hollow when tapped. (Note: if you do not like a hard crust, place a pan of hot water on the rack in the oven under your bread. This will keep the crust soft.
