Delicious Soda Bread

I came across this Soda Bread recipe on Zara's blog - Zaranne Handmade.  I tried it over the weekend and it was very easy to make and tasted delicious!  I made this loaf without seeds but will try the recipe with them next time.  Makes for a lovely weekend bread.

Soda Bread
Sift 500g flour  - any type you please.
2 teaspoons bi-carb soda and a teaspoon of salt into a large mixing bowl - add a handful of seeds for a seeded loaf.
Add 400ml of natural yoghurt (or buttermilk).
Bring together with your hands.
Turn sticky dough onto a floured surface and gently shape into a ball.
Transfer onto a lined and flour dusted baking tray.
Score the surface, add a sprinkle of oats and bake at 200 degrees for 40-45 minutes.



  1. Thank you for posting this one!!! I am excited to try it!! It looks beautiful and tasty as well!

  2. Oh thank you for trying the recipe. I'm so happy it worked for you.
    Lovely photos too.
    A little tip I saw on the River Cottage shows is to save any stale ends in a bag in the freezer until you have a few, then they can be made into breadcrumbs by drying in the oven and putting in the food processor.

  3. This looks delicious!! Can't wait to try it!! (Or ask my Hubby to try it, he's the baker!) I'm sorry for the loss of your sweet Charlie, losing a pet is losing a family member!! Looking forward to reading more of your blog :)

  4. I saw this recipe on Zara's blog - yours looks just as yummy! I'm going to have to try it now!

    PS I got your comment re the chickens and have sent you an email with some info :-)

  5. Thank you for this, it looks so good. I've never made soda bread but it really appeals to me as it doesn't need any proving or kneading, you just seem to mix and bake. I will have to make some i think!
