This is a wholemeal version of Irish soda bread, very quick and easy to make. If you don't like your bread very crusty cover with foil for the last 5 minutes or baking or so.


Serves: 4 

  • 2 1/2 cups (350g) wholemeal flour
  • 3/4 cup (100g) strong white flour
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons sugar to taste
  • 1 heaped teaspoon baking soda
  • 50g rolled oats (optional)
  • 1 1/4 cups (300ml) buttermilk

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat oven 220 degrees C. Sift flours, salt, sugar, baking soda and oats (if using) together in a bowl.
  2. Add buttermilk and mix into a dough (don't over knead or it will produce a tough loaf, you just want to mix the ingredients together). Form dough into a ball and placed on a greased baking tray.
  3. Cut half way through the loaf with a sharp knife then again the other way to form a cross. This splits the bread into crusty sections.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes. Bread is done when it sounds hollow when tapped. Let it cool on a wire rack for 10-15 minutes.
