This crusty, traditional Irish bread is a proud product of the peasant hearth—and the most suitable companion to Irish Stew. Soda bread requires no rising time, as baking powder, baking soda, and buttermilk act as leaveners.
Graham flour is coarser than regular whole-wheat flour, which also works. If you use the latter, substitute one-half cup wheat bran for one-half cup all-purpose flour.

this is my favorite Irish soda recipe. I make it every year for ST. Patty's dinner. It's simple and tasty. We slather cold salted butter on the crust.
Tastes great solo or with a "topping" of your choice (e.g. butter, honey butter).
Pretty easy to make and reminds me of the bread we had in Ireland.
I made this for my family for St.Patrick's Day! I must admit that the buttermilk had me less than thrilled to try this bread but I love almost anything thats irish so I had to try it! Surprisingly after the bread was baked and cooled I tasted it and you couldn't taste any trace of the buttermilk! It was so yummy and a big hit with my family. It's like a big biscuit, somewhat salty, and is just soo good... My Mother said it is very good with Jam...
