Cheese and Herb Irish Soda Bread

An easy homemade bread that requires no yeast and is ready in under an hour. If you're looking for a quick bread win to pair with any dinner or entree, try this Cheese and Herb Irish Soda Bread recipe.



Irish soda breads can be made into either sweet or savory versions. I often lean towards whatever ingredients I have on hand. If you choose not to add fixings, soda breads tend to be bland and boring.


A few ideas for Irish Soda Bread additions:

  • Dried Fruit

  • Cheeses

  • Fresh herbs

  • Dried herbs

  • Nuts

  • Seeds

  • Garlic


HOW TO MAKE CHEESE AND HERB IRISH SODA BREAD



Ingredients needed:

  • All Purpose Flour

  • Baking Soda

  • Baking Powder

  • Salt

  • Egg

  • Buttermilk OR add 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice to a cup of milk

  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese

  • Italian Herbs

Directions:


If you don't have buttermilk (as I often don't), add 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice to a cup of milk. Whisk together and let sit for 5-10 minutes while you gather up the rest of your ingredients.


Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl. Whisk together.


Add an egg to your milk and stir with a fork until egg is distributed.


Make a well in the center of your dry ingredients and pour in milk mixture.


The key to this quick bread is not overworking the dough. Only stir until flour is just incorporated. Transfer to a flour dusted surface and quickly work into a loaf. I use a dough scraper to lift up the sides to the center and work my way around the dough.


Transfer to a parchment lined cookie sheet, cut an X on the top of the loaf, and place in the oven.


Bake for 20 minutes, then cover with foil and return to oven for an additional 8-10 minutes.
