Easy Irish Soda Bread Recipe

If you don’t make anything else for St. Patrick’s Day, I highly recommend this Easy Irish Soda Bread Recipe!  While you can always buy an Irish Soda Bread Mix, our recipe is so easy that it won’t take you much longer and you probably have all the ingredients you need already in your kitchen.

The thing you might not already have is buttermilk, but as an alternative you can just stir one tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice into a cup of milk and let sit for a few minutes. Just as good as regular buttermilk!

This moist, slightly sweet Irish Soda Bread is just delicious. It’s super yummy for breakfast or to serve along with your favorite Irish or St. Patrick’s Day meals like corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, you name it! If you like you can add raisins to your bread, but we prefer it just like this. Simple and delicious. Let’s get on to the recipe!
