Pull Apart Soda Bread

Pull Apart Soda Bread


  • 1 ⅓ cup whole milk

  • ⅓ cup apple-cider vinegar

  • 3 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for surface and dusting

  • 2 ½ tsp coarse sea salt

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 2 oz (4 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

  • 1 cup unprocessed wheat bran¼ cup caraway seeds

  • 1 cup (5 ounces) raisins

  • Salted butter, preferably Irish, for serving


  1. Start with our basic soda-bread recipe. After turning out the dough on a lightly floured surface, divide it into 16 equal pieces and, with floured hands, roll each into a ball. Transfer the balls to a parchment-lined baking sheet in 4 rows of 4, making sure each dough ball is touching the ones around it. With the tip of a paring knife, cut a 1/4-inch-deep X on each ball. Because the pull-apart rolls are smaller than a full loaf, the baking time is cut in half. Cool to room temperature before serving with plenty of salted Irish butter.
