Here’s a simple Whole Wheat Soda Bread recipe. We paired it with slow cooker beef stew for dinner. Yum! And the best part, the kids loved it too.
The texture resembles cornbread (it’s crumbly). It tastes delicious served warm with a little butter.
Whole Wheat Soda Bread Recipe
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 cups raisins
1/2 cup butter, cut in pieces
1 cup buttermilk (a little extra for brushing on top)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Cut butter into dry ingredients using a pastry cutter. Stir in raisins. Form a well in the center and pour in buttermilk. Using a wooden spoon, stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Don’t overmix.
Drop dough onto floured surface and knead 10 times. Divide dough into two pieces and place onto greased cookie sheet or baking stone. Brush top with buttermilk (optional).
Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F. Reduce oven temperature to 375 and bake for about 15 minutes more.
