Irish Soda bread that is quick and easy. The light rye flour gives it a flavour similar to the bread served at the Outback Steak House . Great accompaniment for soups and stews.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the flours, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and brown sugar in a large bowl.
  2. Mix the egg with the buttermilk and stir into the dry ingredients just to blend.
  3. Dust the counter with oatmeal flakes.
  4. Turn out dough and knead about 10 times to cover with flakes and form a round ball.
  5. Place on buttered cookie sheet, cut a cross lightly on top of loaf and bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes or until it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  6. If you don't want to use rye flour, use whole wheat.
  7. It works just as well.

Thank You! Really good - this was the only Irish Soda Bread recipe I found on Recipzaar with both rye flour and oatmeal. Very easy as well. I will make this again!!

Thanks for a great recipe. We enjoyed it so much that I went out and bought more flour and plan to make this recipe instead of using store bought. I also had trouble kneading the dough as it was too sticky. I also added another cup of flour and even though it still seemed to moist I put it in the oven - and it turned out lovely. It's a keeper..
