About this recipe: This soda bread uses more plain flour than wholemeal to give it a lighter colour and softer texture. I add sunflower seeds and use a course wholemeal to give it a little bite.
I have a problem with bicarbonate of soda and sunflower seeds : as soon as I mix them, the seeds turn green! Have you already noticed this and have you got an idea how to get rid of it? Thanks! John - 18 May 2009
I've never made any kind of bread before but this came out wonderfully, went down a treat and highly recommended! - 03 May 2013
I was really excited t try this as the photo looked beautiful. I also grew up on soda bread so I was keen to make it again. So glad I did, even though I used all wholemeal flour - it still turned out perfectly. I love the crunch the sunflower seeds give it, especially when you toast it. - 29 Aug 2008
