Irish Soda Bread!

I have made different variations over the last year or so, Soda Bread is a favorite in the Kelly household, and I recently made a really good one that lasts a bit longer than some other recipes I have made. The added ingredient? A cup of sour cream.


3 cups sifted flour (cake or pastry flour works best since they’re softer)
2 – 4 tbsp sugar (depending on how sweet you want it – or omit it all together)
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup raisins (leave these out for a more traditional soda bread) I also like to use currants.
1⅓ cups buttermilk
1 cup sour cream


Mix the dry ingredients together well. Stir in the raisins, butter milk and sour cream.
Mix together to form a sticky dough. I mix and knead in my Kitchen Aid or you can follow the procedure below.

Turn out onto floured board and knead until smooth (8 – 10 times – don’t over knead.)
Line a 9 inch cake pan with parchment paper and add the dough. Spread the dough out in the pan. I like to bake mine in a round Corning Ware type casserole dish.

Score the dough with a large “X” on the top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 65 minutes.

Enjoy with Beef and Guiness over Noodles
