This is the most simple Irish Soda Bread recipe I've ever used. I learned it from an old Irish gentleman years ago, and it's been my favorite ever since. You can make it simply, and without the cheese, or add the cheese. With or without it, this recipe is great served with soups!

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Beat eggs in a bowl and set aside. Place the Parmesan cheese into a shallow bowl.
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking soda until well combined. Add in milk, several tablespoons at a time, until the mixture forms a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured work surface, and knead several times until the dough comes together.
  3. Roll the dough out into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick, and cut into 2x3-inch squares. Brush each square with beaten egg, and dip the top of the square into the Parmesan cheese. Place the squares onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the squares are lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

5 stars not enough! I added buttermilk instead of plain milk, and being in a hurry didn't cut the dough into squares, just rolled it into a wheel and put the beaten egg (yes, 1 is enough) on top, with some shredded provolone just dumped on it. After 10 minutes it was ready and I cut it into wedges. Wonderful!!! like a pizza, but no waiting for the dough to rise! Shamefully easy and quick, and I got a lot of praise.

Made this for a St. Patrick's Day party and everyone loved it! Very easy to make and the recipe is accurate - the only change is that you definitely don't need two beaten eggs - one is more than enough for glazing the bread. Thanks!!

This recipe was quite simple and easy to make but, I found it a little plain. I enjoyed it with cream cheese and some other toppings. Perhaps I'm missing the context of the bread but, there just isn't any excitement.
