Ian's Irish Soda Bread
An essential for St Patrick's Day is fresh buttered Irish Soda Bread and we think it’s too good to enjoy only once a year. We make a very special version with St David Dairy Buttermilk and a little local honey.Pre-order you soda bread by emailing email@example.com
Can't make it to the shop or fancy making your own? Well, here's our recipe.

- 40gm rolled oats (plus more to sprinkle on top)
- ¾ tsp salt
- ¾ tsp bicarb soda
- 270 gm St David Dairy Buttermilk
- 1 tbsp honey

- Preheat oven at 180C
- Mix the dry ingredients together - flours, oats, salt and bicarb together.
- Mix the St David Dairy Buttermilk and honey together, in a separate bowl.
- Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mix.
- Mix gently together with a fork or spoon. (It’s important not to over mix)
- Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a round.
- Place on a baking paper-lined baking tray.
- Slash a cross on the top of the bread, sprinkle the extra oats on top.
- Bake for 45 mins at 180˚C or until ready. (When ready it will sound hollow when tapped on the base)
- Remove from the oven and brush the top and sides with the melted butter.
- Leave to cool for about 10 mins (if you can wait that long) before cutting. Eat with lots of butter.
