Brown Soda Bread is a quick bread recipe. No kneading or proofing involved.



  • 2 1/2 cup Whole-Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cups Rolled Oats (not quick oats!)
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1 large Egg


  1. Preheat oven to 325°.
  2. Line a 81/2 x 41/2 loaf pan with parchment paper. Leave a centimetre or more over the edge to easily remove the bread once done.
  3. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. Add buttermilk, honey and egg to dry ingredients. Mix well; until everything is incorporated. The dough will be wet and sticky.
  5. Transfer dough to pan.
  6. Smooth top with a spatula. 
  7. Bake for 55mins – 1 hour. The top should be a golden brown. Time may vary due to the type of oven.
  8. Remove the dough from the pan, flip upside down and let cool.


Let the dough cool all the way before you cut it to avoid it pilling.
