10 Amazing Irish Bread Recipes

Those Irish are so clever….no yeast to proof, no rising, no kneading.  And they make an absolutely delicious bread.  Look no further – here are Irish Soda Bread recipes that cover the spectrum from scones, to rolls, to breads.

I love  breakfast in Ireland with the oaty soda bread, slathered with creamy Kerrygold Butter and jam.  I just learned that Kerrygold butter is made from the milk of grass fed cows. No wonder it is so creamy and sweet.  In researching though there are reports that the cows are really only about 90% grass fed. Apparently they are fed some supplemental grains. This is not an issue for me personally but it does cause alarm among people with corn or soy allergies or those averse to possible GMOs in their food.

It’s a good thing these breads are so quick and easy to make because homemade bread is best consumed the day it is made or the following day.  (Note the Waterford Blaa are yeast based rolls but the others are all soda breads.)

So, brew a cup of tea, curl up and browse through these delicious Irish soda breads!  I put the gluten free recipe first in line so GF folks don’t have to wade through all the recipes they are not interested in.  There are also links at the bottom of the post if you are looking for Irish soups or stews to go with the bread!
