Making Irish Soda Bread Biscuits with Kids
By taking our favorite soda bread recipe and turning it into biscuits, I’ve been able to teach the kids how to make quick breads and tips for adapting recipes based on our needs. It’s a great way to introduce kids to bread baking before jumping into yeast recipes.
Another great part about sharing the baking experience with our kids is that we get to spend quality time together. I’ve found that I can talk about a number of different topics when we’re in the kitchen together that they may not have been as receptive to if we were talking in the car or around the dinner table.
When the kids are doing something with their hands, they seem to keep the conversation going without any real prompting. It’s a beautiful thing! I find that these types of recipes are good for all ages. From toddlers to teens, you can’t go wrong with an irish soda bread biscuit recipe.

Irish Soda Bread Biscuits
- 2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons cold butter diced
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 3/4 cup buttermilk see note if you don't have buttermilk
- Preheat the oven to 375. If using stoneware, place stoneware in the oven while it's heating up.
- Combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Work in butter by hand. Make sure to use your fingers to mix it into the dry ingredients.
- Add in the raisins and buttermilk and combine together with your hands. Pat out the dough and form into a disk about 1 inch thick.
- Divide the disk into 6 equal pieces and roll into 2-inch rounds. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes.
If you do not have buttermilk, grab some low-fat milk and vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar). Combine 3/4 cup milk with 1 teaspoon vinegar. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes.
