Tips on How to Ensure That Your Loaf of Irish Soda Bread Comes Out Perfectly Every Time

Irish soda bread is a traditional Irish recipe that has been enjoyed for centuries. It’s a simple, quick-bake bread that is made with just four ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt, and buttermilk. While the recipe may be simple, getting the perfect loaf of Irish soda bread requires a bit of know-how.

To ensure your loaf comes out perfectly every time, here are some tips on how long to bake it for any other steps to take when making your own Irish soda bread. How long to bake Irish soda breadThe most important step when making Irish soda bread is getting the right amount of baking soda in your mixture. Too much baking soda and you’ll have a tough-to-bake, flat loaf. Too little and your loaf will be difficult to rise before it burns.

To get a perfect balance, mix together all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt before adding buttermilk. It should come out like pancake batter or cookie dough—not too thin nor too thick. Next, gradually add in a small amount of boiling water until it comes together into a ball of dough.

The perfect amount of baking soda can vary depending on the size of your loaf, so you’ll need to adjust accordingly. Most recipes call for double the amount in a small loaf or half of that for a larger one.

  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) low-fat buttermilk


Step 1

Grease a 6-quart (6 L) slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk well.

Step 3

Using a handheld mixer, stir in softened butter until the dough is crumbly.

Step 4

Gently pour in the buttermilk (1/4 cup (60 ml) at a time) until the dough forms a ball. Add a little more all-purpose flour, if the dough is too sticky.

Step 5

Transfer the dough to lightly floure surface. Knead by hands, for about 1 minute, or until smooth. Shape it into a round loaf (6-8 inches (15-20 cm)) in diameter.

Step 6

Place the dough in the greased slow cooker. Score an X about half-inch dip (Most bread makers score the dough, using a blade to create a weak point and direct the rapid expansion. Without this step, the dough can open in unexpected areas and a rather chaotic manner.)

Step 7

Cover the pot and cook in a high-heat setting for 2-3 hours or until the bread is golden brown.
