Sultana and Caraway Soda Bread

I am not sure if I like this bread best when it is fresh out of the oven or a few days old and toasted? The sultanas with a touch of caraway seeds combine so well.


Serves: 20 

  • 550g plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 50g sugar
  • 175g sultana
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
  • 475ml buttermilk

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, bicarb and sugar.
  3. Put the sultanas in a small bowl and pour hot water over them. Drain in a colander and dry with paper towel. Add to the flour mixture along with the caraway.
  4. Add the buttermilk to the dough and work the dough for 4-5 minutes until all ingredients are well mixed.
  5. Line a baking tray with baking paper. With floured hands form two loaves and lay apart from each other on the baking tray (they can be an irregular shape). Dust with a little flour and use a sharp knife to cut a cross on each loaf.
  6. Bake for 45-55 minutes in the preheated oven until a skewer comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
