Easy Irish Soda Bread

Easy Irish Soda Bread

Every year, around St. Patrick’s Day, I make Irish Soda bread. It has become one of  my favorite traditions and a favorite bread of mine. It’s such an easy bread to make, and delicious too! My kid’s love it! What I like about it is it’s not too sweet. It almost has the sweetness of a scone, maybe even less than that.

Here’s how make this super easy bread:

1) Combine all your dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, & salt) whisk together until combined.

5) Spray a 9 inch round pan with  nonstick cooking spray and spread the batter evenly. Bake until nice & golden brown.

My favorite way to eat this is fresh out of the oven with a pat of butter! Delicious

Easy Irish Soda Bread


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar together… set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter. (Make sure melted butter has cooled a little… if its too hot, you’ll scramble the eggs.)

Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Stir together with a wooden spoon. Fold in the raisins.

You can use either a loaf pan of a round 9 inch cake pan. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Spread dough evenly into pan.

Bake for about 40-50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
