This quick soda bread is a fun one to whip up for breakfast or dinner. Best when eaten fresh, you can also wrap the loaf well and toast slices the next day.

Ingredients

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 375° F and lightly flour a baking sheet (do not grease).

In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, oil, and water. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry just until a smooth dough forms.

On a lightly floured work surface, gently knead the bread to shape, about 3 minutes, and then form it into a 6-inch diameter round loaf.

Place it on the prepared baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, score it in a semicircle. Bake until golden and firm to touch, about 50 minutes. Let bread cool for 45 minutes before serving.

Notes

If you prefer, honey works wonderfully in this recipe rather than maple syrup. The final loaf will have a lovely shine to it.

sweet bread

I didn't think that soda bread would be sweet. 2 Tablespoons of honey or maple syrup would definitely sweeten the bread. One of my biggest complaints about packaged bread is that it's sweet. Maybe it's just me. I make nice soda bread without any sweetener. I thought it was always like that.

Soda bread has an interesting

Soda bread has an interesting history. Sweeteners were hard to come by in Ireland, so they weren't used in daily bread. In the U.S., many recipes add sweetener of some sort, going back 200 years. It does change the flavor slightly, but adding sweeteners to baked goods also changes the texture--in this case, improving the crust and slightly softening the interior. This isn't a noticeably sweet bread. Happy baking!
