We love this bread because it’s so easy to make and easily adaptable. We’ve had great success with gluten free flour, rye flour, spelt flour, whole meal flour, and good old-fashioned white flour. And the add-ons are virtually endless: seeds, nuts, cheese, fruit, sundried tomato, herbs, whatever you fancy. Irish Soda Bread is traditionally made with buttermilk, but we use milk and yogurt instead (or soya milk and soya yoghurt for our vegan friends).
Whether you're new to baking your own bread or want to learn more, we often offer baking courses where you can improve your skills - and have lots of fun learning from our experts!
