Oscar Wilde, the Irish writer and poet famous for his wit, once said, “Only dull people are brilliant at breakfast.” For true brilliance early in the morning, Mr. Wilde never needed to look any further than his plate, for a full Irish breakfast is a glory to behold. It isn’t just the fried eggs and potatoes and wide array of sizzling pork products that make a classic Irish breakfast so enticing, it’s the homemade bread and scones, baked fresh every morning, that make it special.

The two most famous Irish loaves — brown bread and soda bread — are uncomplicated, free-formed quick breads leavened with baking soda. Bicarbonate of soda was introduced to Ireland around 1840, and it quickly became popular, as bread leavened with baking soda was easier and faster to make than yeast leavened bread. Many Irish kitchens of the era had open hearths rather than ovens, and soda bread was simple to stir together and bake in a covered Dutch oven or on a griddle over a turf fire.

Brown bread and soda bread are made with minimal fuss and just a few basic ingredients — white and/or whole-wheat flour, salt, baking soda and sour milk (or buttermilk, in a modern kitchen.) The acid in the buttermilk activates the baking soda and helps the bread rise. With their crisp, crunchy crust and dense, moist crumb, both types of bread became a staple, best eaten the day they are baked, and delicious spread with plenty of good, salted Irish butter.

Irish brown bread, made with stone-ground whole-wheat flour, is rustic and healthy. Its beautiful, crisp crust is made extra crunchy by starting the loaf at a very high temperature for the first few minutes of baking. My recipe harks back to the oldest, most frugal recipes made without eggs or butter — a basic combination of whole-wheat flour, baking soda, salt and just enough buttermilk to form a soft dough. I stray just a little from this basic recipe with the addition of a little oatmeal and a dash of dark brown sugar for a complex and pleasing flavor and texture.

My Gram’s Irish Soda Bread

Growing up, my mom made this Irish soda bread all the time. We had it for breakfast, for snacks, and for dessert. To this day, I would be happy to eat it nonstop. Some links in this post are affiliate links that earn me a commission if you purchase through them.

This week, I had a plan for what I was going to put up on Tasty Tuesday. It&rsquos my week to bring in lunch for everyone at the bi-weekly PTO president meeting in my district. And hey, it&rsquos St. Patrick&rsquos Day on Wednesday, so making something Irish was an easy choice.

Not so easy? Figuring out what to bring for 25 or so people that&rsquos Irish but isn&rsquot something that half the people won&rsquot like.

Thus, corned beef was out. And lamb stew. I was going to do baked potatoes with a variety of toppings, including chili, until that was done last meeting.

Then I found inspiration (literally). While cleaning off my book shelf to make more room for the wee ones&rsquo books, I discovered that I have a traditional Irish recipes cookbook.

I eagerly leafed through it. And then I decided that I was bringing in the cookbook just to show everyone how lucky they are that I didn&rsquot bring in any of those items.

I was back to the drawing board and drawing a blank. I finally decided to make a potato soup, fresh bread, scones, and Irish soda bread. Wa-la. Hopefully that&rsquos enough food to make everyone happy.

The Irish soda bread I make is the same one that my mom makes that her mom made that she got from her husband&rsquos family who came from Ireland. There are two kinds of Irish soda bread, and this one is the sweet non yeast version.

You&rsquoll notice in the picture that the bread has butter on it. Odd, I know, but this is something my family does.

While I rarely put butter on regular bread, my family taught me to put butter on other bread &ndash like products that definitely don&rsquot need any additional fat or calories &ndash coffee cakes, muffins, cinnamon rolls, and the like.

Go fig. It&rsquos what we do. And the butter on the Irish soda bread is pretty yummy.
