This is a really simple bread to make, most people who have tried it are amazed at just how easy it is to make. Not to mention how tasty it is.

You can change the fillings to suit your own tastes and add anything you like really from spring onions and cheese to crispy smoked rashers or ham.

Allergens : Contains Gluten & Lactose
Basic White Soda Bread
Self Raising Flour - 350g
Buttermilk - 350ml
Bread Soda - 2 tsp
Egg - 1
The Filling
Roasted Red Pepper - 1 large
White Cheddar Cheese - 150g
Fresh Basil - 12 leaves
Garlic Clove - 1 Finely Chopped
Salt - Pinch


Preheat your oven to 180┬░c Gas Mark 4
Grease a loaf tin with butter or margarine ensuring you really get it into the corners and edges.
Sieve the flour and Bread soda into a bowl, add a pinch of salt and mix really well
Grate the cheese then add to the mix
Chop the Peppers, Spring Onion and garlic, add to the bowl with the other ingredients and mix well.
Beat the egg and then pour it and the buttermilk in.
Mix really well leaving no dry lumps. I use my hands for this and always have perfect bread each time.
Pour the bread mix into the greased bread tin, leaving a little less than an inch at the top to allow the bread to rise.
Bake for 45 minutes, remove from the tin and bake upside down for the last 10
You can tell it's cooked when you remove the loaf from the tin and tap on the bottom of the bread, if you hear a hollow sound it's cooked,
If not then bake for a further 10 minutes before testing again.
Wrap in a clean t-towel and leave in a cool dry place to cool
* If you don't have a loaf tin then make it a little dryer by adding some more sieved floor and shape like a round soda bread
