Our Lizzy's Recipe: Soda Bread

Soda bread is really quick and easy to make. Bicarbonate of soda is used rather than yeast.  Perfect with soup or delicious toasted for breakfast!   

Makes 1

Ready in 50 minutes


  • 500g plain white flour/wholemeal flour mixed 
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 300ml ‘buttermilk’*


1. Preheat oven to gas 6/electric 200°C.
2. Place the dry ingredients into a large bowl; add the liquid.
3. Mix to make a rough sticky dough.
4. Tip dough out onto lightly floured work surface.
5. Shape the dough into a ball.
6. Dust the dough with flour and score a deep cross on the top with a bread knife. 
7. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the bread is cooked through. When you tap the base it should sound hollow. Cool on a wire rack.

*Dairy free ‘buttermilk’ can be made by adding 4 tsp cider vinegar to 300ml soya milk. Stir and leave for 10 minutes before using.
