Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread

This is one of the easiest breads to make! It’s great for Saint Patrick’s Day or anytime of the year for breakfast, dinner or teatime. 


2 1/2 Cups Unbleached Flour

1/2 Cup Sugar

2 Teaspoons Caraway Seeds

1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Cup Currants

1 1/4 Cups Buttermilk or Sour Milk

2 Room Temperature Eggs

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch round cake pan. In a large-size bowl combine flour, sugar, caraway seeds, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and kosher salt. Stir in currants. In a medium-size bowl mix together buttermilk (or sour milk), eggs, and vanilla. Stir buttermilk mixture into flour mixture just to combine. Pour into prepared cake pan. Place in oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes until done. Remember that not all ovens heat the same so check at 45 minutes by inserting a toothpick in the center (toothpick should come out clean). Remove from oven and cool in pan for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely on wire rack. Makes 1 loaf that should provide about 10 servings. Serve with unsalted butter.
