Read on to discover how easy it is to make air fryer soda bread.
How To Make Air Fryer Soda Bread
Soda bread in an air fryer is really simple. I made this in a Cosori Dual Blaze air fryer, but it can be made in other air fryer models.
What You Need For Soda Bread
- 500g wholemeal flour
- 1.5 tsp. bicarbonate of soda
- 1.5 tsp. salt
- 500ml buttermilk
Preparing Soda Bread Dough
Start by mixing the dry ingredients together. Sift the flour, salt, and bicarbonate of soda in a large mixing bowl.
Next, make a well in the middle of the dry mixture.
Slowly pour the buttermilk into the centre of the well.
Using your hands, mix everything together until a soft dough forms. The dough should be a little bit sticky to the touch. If it is too dry, add a little bit of buttermilk, but don’t overwork the dough. Form the dough into a ball.
Transfer the dough to the air fryer basket, placing it on some baking paper.
Flatten the dough down and score two lines across the top with a sharp knife, about 1cm deep.
Return the basket to the air fryer and set it off at 180°C for 30 to 35 minutes.
The soda bread is ready when it is brown, also turn the loaf over and gently tap the bottom; it should sound hollow if it is ready. If it isn’t, return it to the air fryer basket for a few more minutes.
Remove the soda bread from the air fryer basket and let it cool for a short while before slicing it.
