Let’s Get This Bread – How to Make a Homemade Irish Soda Bread Recipe

To make quarantine go by faster, all you knead is a simple bread recipe! Melissa, our Senior Technical Designer, breaks down how to make Irish soda bread from scratch, crumb-by-crumb.

“I’ve been making this quick bread for almost a decade! What I like about this recipe is that it is so easy and you can substitute a lot of the ingredients and still get great results. I eat this sliced with butter, but it makes a great toast and French Toast too!”

* Whisk two eggs and kefir together in a bowl. Add wet mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until all dry is incorporated.
* Pour batter into your loaf pan. Use a wet hand to smooth the top of the loaf. If you want, beat an extra egg to brush over the top of your loaf. Use a serrated knife to slash down the middle of the loaf.
