The Irish don't use yeast in soda bread

Thank you!!! This is what I know as well and yet I'm having trouble finding a traditional Irish Soda bread without yeast in it!

Can currents and caraway seeds be added? And if so when?

over 5 years ago

Yes, you can certainly add currents and caraway seeds, and add them to the rest of the ingredients at the beginning. Then put the mixture into the bread machine, press the start button. Hope this helps. Happy Baking :)


I loved this recipe, so simple, YET so perfect, my soda bread is fantastic, never made it before, just ate it. I say I rank in the top (1000). Thanks

Can I use buttermilk instead

Just came back from Ireland, spent 3 days at a wonderful B&B where fresh bread, with different seasonings, is made every morning in bread maker. Their recipe contains yeast but has the same crumbly texture as traditional Irish bread.

How much yeast is in a sachet

Hm (big doubt)...: when you know how fast (2 or 3 minutes !) it takes to mix the ingredients just with a knife or hands, I really don't see the interest of using a bread machine (and having to wash it afterwards).
And above all, in addition to this : the Irish soda bread dough has to be VERY FEW kneaded : once the ingredients mixed in a bowl, you just "work" them about 30 seconds. Overwork makes the gluten be very present, then the consistency of the bread is not at all the Irish one.
The bread machine kneads the bread much too long. And the time tou ohave to wait for, to get your bread cooked, is also very long, wben in the oven you just wait 50 minutes !
So really, where is the advantage of using the bread machine for this fabulous and so quick and easy bread to to by hand (and not to mention the pleasure of "feeling" the dough into your hands...).
So... better go and see the (numerous) recipes of Irish soda bread WITHOUT bread machine (Gemma Stafford, Trish Deseire...) :-)

I'm sorry for the typing (and grammar) errors I left in my message. As I currently don't see it, I can't remember if I talked about ther kneading process time : it has to be 10 seconds maximum (I maybe typed 30). So, you see what a nonsense is using a bread machine, even on "quick position" to make such a bread !...
