Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
  • In a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and margarine.
  • Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk and the egg.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead slightly.
  • Form dough into a round and place on prepared baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl combine melted butter with 1/4 cup buttermilk.
  • Brush loaf with the mixture.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut an X into the top of the loaf.
  • Bake for 45 to 50 minutes OR until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • **In the recipe there is a comma after the word clean (above) which then reads about 30 to 50 minutes. I've no clue what that means. You have been forewarned!
  • You may continue to brush the bread with the butter mixture during baking.

    I'm glad you found it here, debbie! Yes, this one sure is the plainest soda bread around. I like that also because then YOU get to add whatever might be pleasing to you and not have to be stuck with what someone ELSE wants. I thank you for your five and here's hoping both you and your mother-in-law enjoy it!

    This is what I've been looking for - no raisins, and no caraway seeds! Was planning on making this for St. Pat's, as my mother in law loves it; just waiting to find the perfect recipe. I believe this is it! High 5, and a big thank you!

    erin, I need to thank you so much for catching my error in the ingredients list for this bread! Yes, you need 1 cup of the buttermilk in the dough and the 1/4 cup to coat the bread loaf. Not so recipe illiterate after all! Many thanks, my friend.

    I'm confused about the buttermilk. Do I need 1 cup added to the bread and 1/4 cup for the topping? Sorry, I'm recipe illiterate and am constantly convinced I'm making mistakes.

    Great looking recipe! I look forward to trying it :)
