Soda Bread in the Slow Cooker


Soda Bread

In all honesty, this was one of those recipes that I bookmarked to give us a bit of a break from slow-cooked food. Like the brownies, I didn’t really expect this to work. So I was pleasantly surprised when the soda bread turned out to be tasty, crusty and chewy. There’s no danger of a soggy bottom when you bake bread in the slow cooker: a soggy top is a bigger problem, so you can’t really tell when it’s done. I’d advise covering the dough with foil if you have a go at this.


  • 300g plain flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 125ml yoghurt
  • 50ml milk
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Grease the inside of your slow cooker with oil.
  2. Mix together the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder in a bowl. Make a well in the centre.
  3. Mix together the yoghurt and milk. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients.
  4. Mix well to combine. Then knead briefly so that the mixture comes together.
  5. Place dough into your slow cooker. Cover with foil.
  6. Cook on High for 2 1/2 hours.
