Irish Soda Bread is an easy quick bread. No yeast or kneading needed! Buttermilk and baking soda help the bread rise (hence the name!). This recipe yields a bread that is dense, soft, and has a golden crust. Perfect to make for St. Patrick’s Day or any day of the year!
Just mix up, form into a loaf, and bake! I love to bake it in a cast iron skillet as it helps yield a crispier crust, but you can also use a baking sheet.
Buttermilk is a key ingredient. Not just to help the dough rise, but also to add a great tangy flavor.
