Cinnamon Soda Bread

Soda bread can be a bit heavy and flavourless, so I figured I'd try and sweeten it up and give it a little bit of flavour. Ginger takes some of that edge back off.

You can use all Plain or all Self-raising if you don't have one or the other.

Best served hot with a thick glob of butter - even better if you make an open-face sandwich with bacon and steak on top

Cooking Time

Prep: 10 mins
Cooking: 40 mins
Total: 50 mins




  • 220g Plain Flour
  • 220g Self-Raising Flour
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 500g pot of plain natural yoghurt
  • 2 tsp ground sweet cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • Butter/lard for greasing


  1. Preheat oven to 220c
  2. Use some butter/lard to grease up a cake tin (preferably a deep one)
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and salt
  4. Stir in the Sweet Cinnamon and ginger
  5. Stir the yoghurt in a 1/4 pot at a time until the dough sticks together (depending how accurately you measured the flour, you may not need all the yoghurt). Add and stir until it starts to form a ball shape
  6. Sprinkle a little flour on a chopping board or a clean worktop
  7. Lift the dough out onto the floured surface and kneed it a few times
  8. Roll the dough up into a ball
  9. Place into the cake pan and press down on it lightly to flatten a bit
  10. Use a knife to cut an X across the top, about a centimetre deep
  11. Cover the cake tin with tin foil (raising up in a tented form), or turn another tin upside down and place on top
  12. Bake for 30 mins
  13. Remove the cover and bake for another 10 mins (or until golden brown)
  14. Tastes best when served hot
