Homemade Fluffy, Soft and Moist Irish Soda Bread

My Irish Soda Bread is a bit of an anomaly, as many typically use buttermilk. For my recipe I use yougurt – typically because I seem to always have this on hand, and I don’t want to go out to by milk to make buttermilk or buy buttermilk.   The end result is a super moist light interior and crispt and crunchy exterior Irish Soda bread.

Irish Soda Bread
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ⅓ cup of cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1⅓ cups yogurt, full fat plain yogurt
  1. Preheat oven to 425 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place flour, oats, salt, baking soda and sugar into a bowl and stir to fully combine. Add butter and cut into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Combine egg, oil and yogurt into a bowl and stir to fully combine.
  4. Make a well into the flour and pour in yogurt. Using a wooden spoon stir gently until dough begins to form. Using your hands gently bring dough together to form a ball and place onto parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Form dough out into a round shape and slightly flatten the top so the round is about 2 inches thick. Using a knife cut a cross into the top about an inch deep.
  6. Bake at 425 for 25 minutes then reduce heat to 400 and continue baking for an additional 30 to 45 minutes. Remove from oven and place bread on a cooling rack to cool completely.
  7. Serve with butter and jam or eat with your favorite stew!
