This is a simple to make soda bread which requires no yeast, kneading or proving, knocking back etc.
Just mix the ingredients, pour the dough and bake.

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 40 mins
  • Yields: 1 two pound loaf.


Butter, for greasing

225g/8oz plain flour plus extra for dusting

225g/8oz self rising flour ( alternatively use self rising wholemeal for extra fibre)

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 tbsp black treacle ( or use maple syrup or honey or golden syrup)

50g/1 3/4 oz porridge oats, plus 1 tbsp for sprinkling

475ml / 17 fl oz almond milk ( or other alternative vegan milk)

1 tsp sea salt


11. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/Gas 6 and grease a baking tray with butter. (See note below)

22. Mix all the bread ingredients together in a large bowl until a soft sticky dough is formed. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and form into a round. Sprinkle the additional 1 tbsp of oats on top and transfer to the baking tray.

33 Bake for around 35 - 40 mins, or until golden brown and the bread sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom. Place on a wire rack to cool.

4Note. As the dough can be very sticky and hard to handle, if you have a silicon bread mould, or a lekue bread maker the dough can be poured directly into that.
