Easiest (soda) bread in the world, without yeast

“Could you be, the easiest bread in the world?Plain to see, you’re the easiest (soda) bread in the world” x2

Props to my Dad, who perfected, and regularly refines this easiest (but also very tasty) riff on Irish soda bread, made without yeast.


450g Flour (ideally, a combination of strong white and brown)
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon salt
350ml (12 fl oz) yoghurt

1. Put all ingredients in a bowl
2. Knead together by hand
3. Bake in the oven for 15 mins at gas mark 8, then for 30 mins at gas mark 6.

Eh voila. To check if your bread is ready, stick a match into it. If it comes out clean, you’re good to go.
