Irish Soda Pot Bread

This old Irish folk bread has a superb crust and flavour.
4 Ingredients, a tiny bit of kneading and no rising required makes this your new ‘go to’ bread recipe!


2 & 1/2 cups white flour
3/4 tsp bicarb
3/4 tsp salt
250 ml buttermilk


Irish Soda Pot Bread – Method

Pack 16 briquettes onto the coal grid inside your PotjieKing. Put a couple of firelighters in the bottom section and get that going. We used the no 10 Best Duty flat bottom pot which nestles nicely into the PotjieKing.

  • In a bowl mix the flour, salt and bicarb together.
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour the buttermilk in.
  • Stir until mostly combined.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 2 or so minutes.
  • Line the inside of your potjie pot (and lid) with flour – just sprinkle a bit in and use your fingers to cover the inside with flour.
  • Shape the dough until its round-ish and place it into the potjie pot.
  • Using a sharp flour coated knife, cut a shallow cross over the top of the dough.
  • Place the lid onto the potjie pot
  • Space 10 briquettes on top of the potjie pot lid and spread the remaining 6 evenly around the coal grid inside of the PotjieKing.
  • Do not place the braai grid on the PotjieKing but rather let the potjie pot nestle inside the PotjieKing.
  • Close both doors on your PotjieKing.
  • Bake for 20 – 30 min.
  • Use a metal skewer to poke through the centre of the bread. If it comes out clean then it’s ready.
  • Take the loaf out of the potjie pot and allow to cool for a bit.

Serve warm with butter!
