VIDEO: How to make traditional Irish soda bread

Soda bread making step by step

You really ‘ate up’ our recent article about Soda bread and 4 other Irish Bread Varieties. Some of you requested recipes and your wish is our command. This time, why not join us for some Soda bread making in the Old Rectory at the Ulster Folk Museum at Cultra in Northern Ireland.

The Old Rectory at the Ulster Folk Museum

Gillian shows us how quick and easy it actually is to make traditional Irish soda farls on a griddle in a home which is estimated to be 300 years old. The house originally stood about one mile east of Toomebridge before being dismantled and moved to the museum in 1971. One of its residents was a Captain Archibald McCallion who had fought as an officer in the British forces during the American War of Independence. Thanks so much Gillian for allowing us to join you!

      Hi Thomas and thanks for commenting. Good luck with your baking. Can do it on a pan as well apparently. Put a sprinkle of flour on it and when the flour turns a golden colour then it’s the perfect temperature to put the soda mix onto 🙂

    En joyed the demo – bought several small cookbooks while in Ireland.
    Make the Irish soda bread usually with raisins/currants baked in oven.
    Make Welsh cakes on a griddle. Like your music in background.

    Really enjoyed the video, would love to see one for Wheaten bread or even a good recipe? My husband loves the Wheaten when we go to Belfast

      Hi Dorothy, Gillian actually explained this in another part of the video that I had to edit out. So, she says it’s all the same ingredients, except for a wheaten you use 1 part wholemeal to 2 parts white flour. Or even almost half and half. I hope this is helpful 🙂
