Irish Soda Bread

The day I discovered Irish Soda bread was a great day! I bake this rustic, no yeast quick bread to pair with a lot of my recipes. You can add a variety of ingredients to make it unique for the meal you are cooking. Cheese and jalapenos, Italian seasonings, olives and can even add cinnamon and raisins and make it a desert bread, use your imagination! Below I have added the Italian seasoning, pesto, garlic, olives and cheese. Simply omit those items and add whatever you want in similar quantities.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Servings: 12


4 cups all purpose flour

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

3 Tbsp pesto

2 Tbsp minced garlic

1/3 cup olives (I like kalamata)

-In a separate bowl mix buttermilk and pesto
