Homemade Irish Soda Bread In Air Fryer (Bread Soda)

Homemade Irish Soda Bread In Air Fryer (Bread Soda)

A straightforward recipe for handmade Irish soda bread fried in an air fryer using white flour, baking soda, buttermilk, salt, and sugar. This is a hearty, flavorful recipe for soda bread that has a slightly dense interior and a crusty, rustic outside. It is thicker than typical yeast-baked sandwich bread, yet it’s neither overly dense nor very fluffy. “Soda bread” refers to a loaf that is leavened without the use of yeast, using baking soda, sometimes known as “bicarbonate soda.”
it just needs only five  ingredients and doesn’t require kneading. The best thing is that it just takes 20 minutes to bake in the air fryer! Enjoy a slice with some jam or butter!
Recipe By:Nkechi Ajaeroh


REP TIME: Five minutes
TIME TO COOK: 20 minutes
Twenty-five minutes total
Yield: 6



  1. Two cups of flour for all purposes
  2. One cup of buttermilk
  3. Two tsp sugar
  4. One-half teaspoon of baking soda
  5. A teaspoon or two of salt




  1. Step one: Add all the dry ingredients into a big bowl, and use a spatula to combine.
  2. Step two: Add the buttermilk to the dry, gently combine with the spatula and then use your hand to form it into a ball.
  3. Step three: Divide dough into two; form each into a round loaf.
  4. Step four: Spray air fryer basket and place dough in the air fryer; make a cross or score the top of the dough with X. This helps the dough bake faster and evenly. Milk wash the top of the bread by simply brushing with milk.
  5. Step five: Bake the dough for 20 minutes at 300 degrees and check for doneness with a toothpick insert. I typically do not turn the bread halfway; the score helps it perfectly cook without flipping. After baking, allow cooling before serving. Easily break this bread apart using the “farts,” (the cross).




  1. Do not over mix (overwork) the dough.
  2. I didn’t turn/flip the dough halfway through cooking.
  3. If you wish to store this homemade Irish bread for later, ensure not to allow it to dry out. This particular type of bread can quickly dry out.
  4. This recipe made two small loaves of soda bread. If you intend to bake a big loaf, the baking time and temperature may change. For the best result, use my exact ingredient measurements.
  5. When I was making this recipe, I didn’t have buttermilk, so I added a tablespoon of distilled white vinegar to a cup of milk. I shook it and warmed it up for 20 seconds in the microwave. It worked as buttermilk substitution.
  6. This recipe serves between 6 – 8 people as a snack or appetizer.
