Irish Soda Bread

Yield: 1 large or 2 smaller loaf pans.

This Irish soda bread is a great bread recipe for a yeast free bread dough. The soda bread has a light, sweet, and salty flavor that's perfect for adding to any meal or on its own. We like to make grilled sandwiches with it!


  • 3 1/2 cups of flour
  • 2 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup soft butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix thoroughly.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together sour cream, egg, and butter. Mix completely until smooth.
  4. Begin stirring flour mixture into sour cream mixture until completely combined.
  5. Press the soft dough into greased loaf pan(s). I used 2 medium or smaller pans. If using 1 loaf pan, use a standard sized 9" pan.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour or even a bit longer depending on the pan size. I have a little variance in times each time I make this, so just keep your eyes on it from 45 minutes! Be sure to test the loaves by inserting a butter knife into the center of the loaf. When it comes out clean, its done.
  7. Allow the loaves to cool for at least 15 minutes before removing them from the pans.
  8. If you wrap the loaves and refrigerate them overnight, the flavor will strengthen. It is not a must though, either way, it tastes great!
