Irish Soda Bread

This recipe is from Food Network's Claire Robinson. There is a video tutorial here, along with the recipe, that shows you step-by-step how to make the bread.

Claire's Easy Irish Soda Bread


1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading surface
3 cups whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups buttermilk


Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking soda, oats and salt. Pour in most of the buttermilk and mix well, adding more buttermilk, if needed, to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and lightly knead into a shapeable dough. Avoid overworking the dough. Shape the dough into a round disk shaped loaf and cut a deep "X" in the top with a sharp knife. Put the dough on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes at 425 degrees F. Lower the oven temperature to 375 degrees F and bake another 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the bread from the oven to a cutting board. Cool slightly before cutting and enjoy warm!
