Soda Bread

A traditional Irish bread that can be made in minutes - it uses bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar in place of yeast so requires no ‘proving' time. It can be flavoured to be sweet or savoury but is just as good plain.

This recipe uses 500g of Fibre Mix. A 500g pack of Fibre Mix is 2 units of your monthly prescription unit allowance

  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar

  • Method

    1. Before you start, preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6 and lightly grease a baking tray.
    2. Place a whole packet of Fibre Mix into a bowl and stir in the salt, bicarbonate of soda and cream of tartar.
    3. Add the lemon juice to the milk to sour it. Gradually add sufficient milk to the Mix to form a soft but not sticky dough.
    4. Knead until smooth on a surface lightly dusted with Mix.
    5. Shape into a round and place onto baking tray. Cut a shallow cross on the top of the dough with a sharp knife and bake in a preheated oven for 45-50 minutes.
