Air Fryer Soda Bread


410g plain flour 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda (Bicarb) 1 teaspoon of salt 300ml buttermilk*

*You can make buttermilk by adding 11/2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice to 300ml milk in a jug. Stir to combine and leave to sit for 10-15 minutes. The buttermilk is ready when the milk has thickened slightly.

You could also use half milk/half plain yoghurt or whey as a substitute for buttermilk.


  • Preheat the air fryer at 345F/175C, for 5 minutes.
  • To a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, bicarb and salt, and mix until incorporated.
  • Pour the buttermilk into the dry ingredients, mix until the dough starts to come together to form a sticky dough.
  • Turn the dough out on a lightly floured worktop and knead it gently until it comes together then shape into a ball.
  • Lightly flour a peice of parchment paper and transfer the shaped loaf onto it. With a serrated knife cut a deep cross on the dough, carefully place it into the air fryer and fry for 30-35 minutes. Flip the soda bread halfway through so that it bakes evenly. You will know the bread is done if an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Remove the loaf from the air fryer, and transfer to a cooling rack to cool slightly before serving. Slice the bread however you like and slather some butter and jam on, or enjoy as it is with beef stew or any soup of choice
