Soda Bread is an Irish-style quick bread that is made using baking soda in place of yeast as a leavening agent! This makes for a harder, denser bread, which is perfect for soup, cool weather, and a nice smear of salted European butter! This soda bread will make a wonderful centerpiece to any fall spread and is perfect for a whole family to enjoy together. It is straight forward to make and looks great on the table!
This bread is also easy to make with children since it does not take a lot of delicate work or a lot of strength, but beware as the dough can be very sticky! Soda bread can be made sweet or savory, so feel free to decorate with pumpkin seeds or nuts as well to make all kinds of gourds!
