Easy and quick to make – Irish Soda Bread is not only a nice treat for St. Patrick’s Day.


8.8 oz. (250g) wholemeal spelt flour
8.8 oz. (250g) spelt flour
3.5 oz. (100g) rolled oats
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
0.9 oz. (25g) cold butter, diced
3.5 oz. (100g) raisins
1.8 oz. (50g) cranberries
17 fl. oz. (500ml) buttermilk


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with baking parchment and set aside.
2. Add both of the flours, the rolled oats, baking soda, and salt to a large bowl. Add the diced butter and rub into the flour. Add the raisins and cranberries and mix in. Add the buttermilk and use a spoon or knife to mix in – do not overmix. The dough will be quite sticky. Shape into a flat round loaf (Ø 8 inches/20cm) and place on the prepared baking sheet. Cut a deep cross in the top and bake for 38-45 minutes or until the loaf sounds hollow when you knock on the bottom. Take out of the oven and let cool down completely on a wire rack.


Enjoy baking!
