Basic Irish Soda Bread With Cheese

Basic Irish Soda Bread With Cheese This is the most simple Irish Soda Bread recipe I’ve ever used. I learned it from an old Irish gentleman years ago, and it’s been my favorite ever since. You can make it simply, and without the cheese, or add the cheese. With or without it, this recipe is great served with soups!

  • In a bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking soda until well combined. Add in milk, several tablespoons at a time, until the mixture forms a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured work surface, and knead several times until the dough comes together.

  • Roll the dough out into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick, and cut into 2×3-inch squares. Brush each square with beaten egg, and dip the top of the square into the Parmesan cheese. Place the squares onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the squares are lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
