Daniel Oliver’s Irish Soda Bread

Joyful St Patrick’s Day


My buddy Dan Oliver posted his recipe for this St. Patrick’s Day favourite and I advised him I used to be going to make use of his recipe this 12 months. it turned out superbly and scrumptious.


3 ½ cups bread flour
1/2 cup entire wheat flour,
1 cup every plumped raisins
2 cups entire buttermilk
1 egg crushed
6 tablespoons butter
2 teas[poons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar


Cut butter into the flour as is done for biscuits; add dry ingredients; then add wet ingredients; work into a dough ball either by hand/spatula or a stand mixer; flour the dough ball and shape it into a circle on a floured pastry board.

Place on a greased pan or a piece of parchment; let rest for 5 minutes; slice a cross on the top.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 45-50 minutes.

I used my Cloche-covered baker, but you can use what you have, covered or not. If you use a covered baker, place the baker in the oven as it preheats. Add dough ball and coke as directed above.
