Since soda bread doesn't include yeast, it's a kind of quick bread. I enjoy making this recipe because I don't have to wait for the bread to rise, and still get delicious results!
While Irish soda bread usually is a quick sweet bread, I wanted to make another version on the blog that was savory.
Instead of raisins and caraway seeds, I added cheddar and chives to make the bread savory!
I love this recipe with stews, soup, or simply sliced and eaten with a side of butter. All of these ways taste absolutely amazing for this savory soda bread!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup chives, chopped into small pieces
3/4 cups cheddar, cut into cubes
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups yogurt or buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the bread. Knead to form a somewhat sticky dough.
Place the dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet and form into a large disk (don't flatten too much though). Cut an X across the bread, and bake for 35 minutes.
