Rosemary Irish Soda Bread

Irish Soda Bread Italian soda bread is easy, yummy, and even better with the addition of our Rosemary Olive Oil. During these tricky and wacky times, a lot of us have been getting back to bread making and learning to work with our hands to make food. Its good for the head, heart, and stomach! Irish soda bread is an interesting bread to make, as it requires no yeast but plenty of flour. While it is traditionally eaten without a lot of herbaceous flavour added the rosemary makes a lovely addition.


2 Cups of All Purpose Flour

1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

One big Pinch of Sugar

1/2 Teaspoon of Salt

3/4 Cup of Buttermilk*

2 Two tablespoons of Rosemary Olive Oil

*if you don't have buttermilk you can make an easy alternative by adding lemon juice to milk and allowing it to sit and curdle for about half an hour.

Instructions. 1. Pre heat oven to 375 degrees and grease a medium sized pan

2. In a fairly large bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Once combined add in the buttermilk (or buttermilk alternative) along with the Rosemary Olive Oil.

3. Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a lightly floured surface and begin kneading, do not exceed kneading for 30 seconds. Place the kneaded bread on your baking pan in an oval shape, no taller than two inches. Get a serrated knife and make a cross shape along the top of the bread.

4. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 30 to 40 minutes or until it feels hollow when tapped. 5. Serve!!! Preferably with a little bit of Butter Flavoured Olive Oil.
