Making Soda Bread: A Pizza & Make a Thing Event

Making Soda Bread: A Pizza & Make a Thing Event In-Person

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a recipe for mini soda breads at the library!  Mix, bake and enjoy this festive treat.

Irish Soda Bread was first created in the late 1830s, when the first iteration of baking soda—or bicarbonate soda—was introduced to the U.K..

Fun Fact: Though soda bread is now most commonly attributed to Ireland, the first people to use soda to leaven their bread was the American Indians. These indigenous Americans were the first to be documented using pearl ash—a natural form of soda created from the ashes of wood—to leaven their breads without the presence of yeast. However, it wasn’t until this process was later discovered and replicated by the Irish that it earned a reputation worldwide.
