Recipe for Traditional Irish Soda Bread (with Whole Wheat Flour)


1 cup White Whole Wheat Flour
1 cup Multipurpose Flour 
1 t. Salt
1 t. Baking Soda 
1 cup Buttermilk

Yields 1 Small Loaf

Preheat Oven to 350 F.

1. Grease a cookie sheet.

2. Mix together Multipurpose Flour, White Whole Wheat Flour, Salt and Baking Soda.


3.  Stir in the Buttermilk.  Start with a wooden spoon.  Then continue with your hands. Combine until smooth.

4.  Form the dough into a round about 6 inches in diameter and place on the middle of the cookie sheet. 


5.  Take a sharp knife and make an "X" in the center of the bread.


6.  Bake approximately 40 minutes.  It’s done when a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the loaf.


This bread is denser than American Irish Soda Bread.  I recommend serving it with jam.  We liked it with blueberry preserves.
