This berry easy homemade Cranberry Irish Soda Bread is a cinch to make! And whether or not you're Irish, the fruity flavor of cranberries bursting from this bread will make it a favorite standard in your house. Oh - right after it cools, make sure to wrap and hide it well so a leprechaun won't eat it all up!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon butter, melted, divided
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except 1 tablespoon melted butter; mix just until moistened. Pour into the cake pan and bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  3. Brush the top with the remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter then cut into wedges and serve warm.


I know it's a little untraditional to use sweetened dried cranberries, but when I tried it, I loved it! If you don't have them, though, go ahead and use raisins.

could you use splenda?

Yes, you can use Splenda instead of sugar.

Loved the sweetness of this recipe. The cranberries were a lovely addition. Leftovers were outstanding for breakfast with orange marmelade!

Made this and it got raves from everyone. Awesome! Making again tonight.

Big improvement over raisins!

the best soda bread ever.
