This is a delicious brown bread closest to what we ate while in Ireland. It isn't Irish soda bread, which has a completely different taste and texture. We LOVE this recipe!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Lightly grease a baking sheet.

  • Mix all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.

  • Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture forms fine crumbs.

  • Stir whole-wheat flour and quick-cooking oatmeal into the butter mixture.

  • Gently stir yogurt into the oatmeal mixture. If mixture is too dry to hold together, add 1 teaspoon milk at a time, just until dough holds together; it should not be sticky.

  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface; knead gently about 5 times to form a ball.

  • Place the dough in the center of the prepared baking sheet; cut a large 'X' in the top of the loaf.

  • Bake in preheated oven until well browned, about 40 minutes; transfer to a rack to cool. Bread can be served warm or cold.
