“Muffin Monday” Irish Soda Bread

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day I decided to step away from muffins and make some Irish Soda Bread today. I opted for the sweeter version of Soda Bread. I hope you like it.



  • 4 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Currants
  • 3/4 cup Golden Raisins
  • 1 Egg, beaten
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt


1. Pre heat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking pan with parchment or silicone mat. (I used my new fancy silicone mats.

2. Mix the Flour, Salt, Baking Soda and Sugar in a large bowl.

3. Add the Currants and the Golden Raisins.

4. In a smaller bowl combine the Egg, Buttermilk and Greek Yogurt.

5. Add the wet to the dry to form a dough. Make into two balls.

6. On well floured surface need the dough about 10 times. Form into loaves.


7.  Place onto baking sheets and bake for about an hour, until knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

8. Cool a few minutes before enjoying.

We had the bread as part of our St. Patrick’s Day feast, and it was delicious.


The Irish Soda Bread takes center stage on our St. Patrick’s Day spread. We had mussels, baked fish, and colcannon (mashed potatoes and cabbage).
