Print Recipe


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 4 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1 t salt
  • 3 T sugar
  • 1 T caraway seeds
  • 2 c buttermilk


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9-inch bread pan and dust it with flour. In a large bowl, mix 4 cups of flour with the baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, and seeds. Add the buttermilk to the bowl and mix with a fork until the mixture forms a dough.
  • Sprinkle flour on a board. Turn out the dough and knead for about 5 minutes, working in the flour from the board and forming the dough into a smooth round loaf about 8 inches in diameter. Press the dough evenly into the pan and cut an "x" about 1/2 inch deep across the top.
  • Bake for 1 and a quarter hours or until the loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Move the loaf onto a wire rack and brush the top with butter. 
  • Serve warm with soft Irish butter.  Break off chunks or slice.


This bread is perfect to serve stew or soup.
