Garlic & Herb Soda Bread


  1. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 cup whole wheat flour (or you can do all 4 cups all-purpose flour)
  3. 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  4. ½ tsp salt
  5. 1 tsp Garlic salt
  6. 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  7. 1 tsp Parsley flakes (dried)
  8. Olive oil ½ cup
  9. 2 cups of buttermilk


Mix (1) to (7) together in a large mixing bowl.

Add about 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk and lightly mix, then add ½ cup olive oil and see if the dough binds. Use the last ½ cup of buttermilk as needed to get a soft (kind of sticky) dough. If you used up all the buttermilk and the dough seems tough, add water, one table spoon at a time as needed to get a dough consistency that is somewhat in between dough and paste.

Try not to over mix. You can first use a spoon gently to get everything combined and hand knead at the end.

Divide the dough into two halves. Make each a ball and put it in a well seasoned cast iron pan.

Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.

You know the bread is done when you can put a fork in the center and it comes out clean.

It will be sticky but so worth it! I hope you enjoy this recipe and here are some pictures of my two loaves of Garlic and Herb Soda Bread.
