Our cupboards may not be as packed with our usual groceries at the moment–but if you have some flour (any flour) you can make some delicious and super fast soda bread.

Honestly, one of my favourite recipes and the feeling and taste of fresh bread is one of life’s simple pleasures, I think. And it’s so incredibly easy to make–mix, shape and bake. That’s it!

Hopefully, you’ll have most of the ingredients but the most important are the flour, bicarbonate of soda and the vinegar–as the vinegar activates the bicarb and leavens the bread, giving the rise.

But don’t worry about anything else–you can use any flour or a mix of flours (not self raising), any vinegar, any herb and nut/seed mix and if you don’t have yogurt, you can use coconut cream.

I really hope you try out this recipe–it’s a joy to make. Sending love, Niki xxx.

  1. Hi! Could I use Cashew milk instead of almond milk? If it is really necessary the almond milk then i’lo do it. Is just that I have cashew milk ready, thanks!

    1. Hi Nicki, I have made this several times and we have loved it every time. I made it gluten free and needed to adjust the milk quantity. It depends on the G.F flours used
