Irish Soda Bread
Written by lucywg

Soda Bread is such an easy bread recipe that even I can do it perfectly. Instead of yeast it uses bicarb of soda as a raising agent. The loaf has a lovely crust with a soft fluffy inner to make the perfect sandwich or dunker. I use yoghurt but you can use buttermilk. Use with jam or cheese and pickle for a delightful meal or snack.
