Quick and simple to make, freshly baked soda bread tastes terrific. In the version here it’s made with half wholemeal flour to give it a delicious coarse texture and nutty flavour. It goes well with butter and jam for breakfast, or with soups and salads for lunch. Or wedges can be split for favourite sandwich fillings.
I came up with this recipe for wheaten bread because I really enjoy the density of the bread, but prefer it to be a little less dry. My husband loves this bread with a bowl of tomato and lentil soup or with butter and cheese or with marmalade. It really is so easy to make and comes out perfectly every time! I hope you will enjoy it too!
This is more commonly known as fruit soda because of the dried fruit. Serve sliced, buttered and with strong tea! You can also make this recipe into scones or farls.
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.
Soda bread dough is flattened into a round circle and divided into farls, meaning 4 parts. It is then cooked on a dry griddle or pan. Traditionally this was the quickest way to make soda bread for unexpected guests who drop by for a bit of craic (good fun). It's best eaten fresh with butter and jam but is also delicious fried as part of an Ulster fry.
