Easy Irish soda bread from the pan with brown whiskey butter

Must Try

Soda bread is very easy to make. And this variant – from star chef Martijn Kajuiter – can also be made in a frying pan! Delicious with homemade, lightly beaten brown whiskey butter. Do you also want to go to butter heaven? Then make this recipe.


For 1 loaf of bread and a good supply of butter:

For the soda bread

  • 400 grams of flour
  • 15 grams of salt
  • 15 grams of sugar
  • 6 grams baking powder
  • 300 ml buttermilk

For the brown whiskey butter:

  • 250 gr Kerrygold butter (or other butter)
  • 30 ml Teeling whiskey
  • Maldon sea salt
  • walnuts

We got this recipe from the Groningen star chef Martijn Kajuiter. Until last month, he headed The Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore, on the south coast of Ireland. He previously worked at De Kas in Amsterdam, among others.

During a virtual cooking workshop by Tourism Ireland , we learned how to put an Irish Christmas menu on the table under the watchful eye of Martijn. We can share the recipe for his soda bread and the brown whiskey butter with you. Highly recommended.

This is how you make Irish soda bread

Mix all ingredients and knead into a ball, dusting occasionally with flour.

Place a heavy-bottomed pan over a low heat, dust the bottom with flour and wait until the flour turns golden yellow. Then press the ball of dough slightly flat in the pan and wait until the mass has risen.

Check whether the underside is nicely colored and turn the bread after ten to fifteen minutes. Brown the other side. The bread should then be cooked. Because an open pan is used on an open fire, it is not possible to give exact temperatures. Too hot is bad anyway.

This is how you make brown whiskey butter

Melt the butter in a suitable pan and gradually let it erupt over medium heat and turn a walnut brown, then remove from the heat.

Deglaze the butter with whiskey, beware it can burn.

Now pour the butter into a bowl and beat on ice with a whisk until cold.

The butter will now cool and become nice and creamy and airy. Make a quenelle of the butter or fill butter jars with it.

Before serving, sprinkle a few maldon sea salt crystals on top with optional chopped walnuts.
