Irish Soda Bread

Yield: One 8-inch oval loaf

With the whole grains, golden raisins, and caraway seeds, this hearty bread is both savory and sweet. It makes a nice addition to dinner or breakfast.


  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat four
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In large mixing bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, caraway seeds, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add the melted butter and mix well. Add the yogurt and mix on a low speed for a minute or two, until the dough comes together. Add the raisins and mix just to combine.
  4. Using your hands, gather the dough into a ball and form it into an 8-inch long oval. It will not be perfectly smooth – that’s okay. Place it on the prepared baking sheet. Use a sharp knife to make a cut down the middle of the loaf about one inch deep and five inches long.
  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the crust feels crispy and the bottom has started to brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
