Bake “No Yeast” Whole Grain Soda Bread

Objective: To make a delicious bread in one bowl. No yeast or kneading required!


  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup uncooked grain porridge cereal (e.g. Red River Cereal)
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 4 cups of buttermilk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease 1 bread pan and 1 muffin tin.
  2. In a very large bowl: mix white flour, whole wheat flour, grain cereal, brown sugar, salt, and baking soda.
  3. Form a well in the center of the flour mixture, and pour in buttermilk.
  4. Mix until the dry ingredients are incorporated. (The batter is pretty wet. More like muffin batter.)
  5. Fill the muffin tins with batter and a bread pan with the remaining batter.
  6. Bake the rolls for 20-25 minutes and the loaf of bread for 55-60 minutes.
