Soda Bread Recipe in a Skillet

Soda Bread Recipe in a Skillet – Super easy, slightly sweet, quick and traditional Irish Soda Bread made with just 6 ingredients!

Soda Bread Recipe in a Skillet
This easy Skillet Soda Bread is a quick bread recipe made with raisins, and it will take you about 5 minutes to prepare it. Just stir together the ingredients, transfer the dough to a cast iron skillet, and GO!

This bread is for the bread lover and not necessarily for the bread-maker, which is perfect because, there’s no kneading, no time waiting around to rise, no not much of anything. Just a stir, a bit of shaping, and done. 5 minutes of work for a fresh loaf! GIMME!

Irish Week continues, aaaaaand for the next 2 days, my name is Katherine McPetrovska. I like Green Beer, Irish Martinis, and Bailey’s Buttercream Brownies to wash it all down. ☘☘☘Nice to meet you!

Heeey, shams! How goes the battle? <<< Irish slang for “how are you”, and it makes sense! Battle = life!
It’s pretty awesome, I’d say! Especially when there’s soda bread to be celebrated. 
Any excuse to snack on bread, know whadda mean?

I have a plan for you for St. Paddy’s Day tomorrow: make yourself some Soda Bread and never look back. ☘

soda bread ingredients, flour, eggs, buttermilk

Just as every bread story goes, we’re first going to gather all our soda bread ingredients:

  • flour
  • baking soda
  • sugar
  • salt
  • eggs
  • buttermilk
  • raisins (I’ve been told that the raisins are optional, but I beg to differ… this bread is way more amazing with them dried up grapes inside)

There is just something so… comforting… about homemade bread. Right? I have had this particular recipe on the blog for years, but I had to reintroduce it to ya again for the reason that everyone needs a simple go-to recipe for bread, and not just because it’s St. Patrick’s Day. I mean, it helps, but it doesn’t have to be made only for the Holiday.

Now… HOW TO MAKE SODA BREAD IN A SKILLET

  1. Place dry ingredients – flour, sugar, baking soda, salt – in a mixing bowl and just whisk it all together until thoroughly combined.
  2. Whisk wet ingredients – buttermilk and eggs – until combined and stir into the dry ingredients.
  3. Continue to stir until just everything is well incorporated.
  4. Add some raisins and transfer dough to a parchment lined cast iron skillet.
  5. Bake for 50 minutes, or until top is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Also, sidenote: can I get a round of applause for providing a recipe today without chicken in a pan?! WHAT IS GOING ON.

That’s another reason I’m a soda bread fan. No chopping, no sauteeing, and I still crave it. It’s like, bread has magic powers, and I believe they’re called carbs.

Also?!? I made you some homemade buttermilk to use IN it! Yeah, completely homemade. Like, you take milk and vinegar, stir it all together and BAM! That’s how homemade buttermilk is done. Now, if I only had a cow in my backyard, then it’d be completely homemade.

Anyhew.

I wanted to mention that I added raisins to this, but you really don’t have to. According to some articles I read, the raisins are the “Americanized” version of the bread so to make it sweeter. For when I want to snack on it, I add raisins, but when it’s to be paired up with warm soup or a Dublin Coddle, I ditch the raisins and go straight-up authentic. It’s SO worth it!

If you’re looking for something simple, but fun to make in the kitchen for tomorrow’s Holiday, this should be IT. It’s easy, quick, very simple, but the results are dawg gone good! Git ‘er done!

ENJOY!

    Extremely easy. Love recipes like this. However, it is too sweet for me even without thr raisins. If I cut the sugar to 1/3 cup, will it ruin the chemistry?
