What makes Irish Soda Bread so special? Well the essential ingredients in this traditional bread are flour, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk. It's the acid in the buttermilk which reacts with the baking soda base in order to provide the bread’s leavening. And it's the leavening from the buttermilk and baking soda that even inspired the bread's name, “soda bread”.
This easy Irish Soda Bread recipe only requires FOUR ingredients so let's get started! Baking bread has never been easier.
For garnish: sesame seeds and poppy seeds (or choose different seeds depending on your taste)
