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.

Cooking with Chika


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup of cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 1/3 cups yogurt full fat plain yogurt


  • Preheat oven to 425 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 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.
  • Combine egg, oil and yogurt into a bowl and stir to fully combine.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Serve with butter and jam or eat with your favorite stew!
