Crock-Pot Irish Soda Bread
Just in time for St. Patrick’s day this recipe for Irish soda bread is made in your slow cooker and could not be any easier to make.
There is nothing like a slice of freshly baked warm bread spread with a little butter and jam to make you smile and this recipe for Irish soda bread is made with just a handful of ingredients and does not require any yeast (or the rising time associated with yeast breads).
To make this bread rise baking soda and baking powder are the leavening ingredients instead of yeast. And buttermilk, with it’s little bit of acidity reacts with the baking powder to make the bread rise.
Irish soda bread is not a fluffy bread however, expect the texture to be more like an American biscuit. Fluffy yet dense.
To make the Irish soda bread you will need:
- All purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Kosher salt
- Buttermilk (I used low-fat cultured buttermilk)
Then you just:
- Mix the dry ingredients up with a whisk.
- Cut in the butter using either a pastry blender or hand held mixer. Just mix it until it is crumbly.
- Then add in the buttermilk until it starts to form a ball and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
- Knead the dough until smooth.
- Pop it into your slow cooker and score the top of the bread with an “X”.
- Cover and cook for a few hours until golden brown on the bottom.
- Serve by slicing into about 10 slices and slathering each slice with butter and/or jam.
