Easy Cheesy Jalapeno Soda Bread – so incredibly tasty!

Easy Cheesy Jalapeno Soda Bread, delicious and perfect with soup! Fab Food 4 All

It’s autumn which means it’s very much soup weather and every soup deserves a good helping of crusty bread. My Easy Cheesy Jalapeno Soda Bread takes just minutes to prepare and is the perfect soup accompaniment or is great as part of a cold table. If you’ve never made soda bread the only thing you need to be aware of is to get the dough into the oven as quickly as possible as the gases start being released from the raising agents as soon as you add the liquid (in this case beer).

Cheddar and chillies are such great bed fellows so this Easy Cheesy Jalapeno Soda Bread didn’t last long and was devoured at one sitting. So the next time you run out of bread I recommend you make soda bread as it’ll be ready before you could pop out to the shops to buy some!

      Thanks Glenn, it is a fab loaf:-)


    My family love this Soda Bread. Yummy

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Ellen, so glad you all like it:-)

  14. William Gould

    I does look interesting, but my wife is not keen on jalapenos so I’ll probably not get around to trying it…. 🙁

    1. Camilla

      Or William, you could make it, slice it up and freeze what you didn’t use for another day:-)

  15. ftovey7

    This sounds absolutely lovely, can’t wait to give it a go

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, it is a fab loaf:-)

    1. Camilla

      Thank you so much Gill and glad I checked my spam tonight as somehow your comment ended up there – boo:-( I’m sure your family will love the bread, it didn’t last long here:-)

  17. Sally - My Custard Pie

    I’m back to bread making and have been searching for a good soda bread recipe. This ticks all the boxes – especially with beer and chillies involved.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Sally, glad you like it:-)

  18. kellie@foodtoglow

    Dayum girl, this looks and sounds SOOO good. I make jalapeno and cheese cornbreads but haven’t tried as soda bread.Gorgeous idea. And loving the images too. Lovely lovely, Camilla xx

    1. Camilla

      Aaw, thank you so much Kellie, very kind words:-)

  19. Natalie @Cooks And Cookers

    I love soda bread with houmous and adding jalapenos for that extra kick sounds grate. Thank you for another simple and delicious recipe :-).

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Natalie:-)

  20. Ickle Pickle

    Oh I love making my own soups – and this bread looks absolutely delicious. Kaz x

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Kaz, it does go so well with soup:-)

  21. Choclette

    It looks gorgeous Camilla and the flavours sound right up my street. Soda bread is just perfect for when you want bread in a hurry and it’s just what a good bowl of soup needs 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Choclette, yes I’m sure you’d love it:-)

  22. Elizabeth

    Mmmm I’m loving the sound of this. I do love jalapenos but there’s no way my kids would eat it, lol! Too spicy for them.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Elizabeth, I think you’d get away with it as the spice is quite diluted throughout the loaf as the jalapenos are chopped up and as half are red, (sweeter) it’s less spicy than if all green. My daughter loved it and she doesn’t like highly spiced food.

  23. Sarah

    This sounds amazing, Looks so tasty too! I must try this!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Sarah, do let me know what you think:-)

  28. Kavey

    I love soda bread, it’s always felt a bit magical to me, the speed of it all!

    1. Camilla

      Yes it is magical isn’t it:-)

  29. Milly Youngman

    Anything with jalapenos is a win for me, I love a bit of spice. This sounds great!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Milly, we’re all spice fans here too:-)

  30. francesca

    Oh my word this sounds delicious! I love soda bread so much but I’ve never made it with fillings such a cheese and jalapeño before!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Francesca I hope you give it a go then:-)

  31. Lucy

    Mmm it looks fabulous, I’ve never used beer in bread before, must try it! Thanks for linking to my soda bread.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Lucy! I like using beer or cider as I’m not keen on the flavour of buttermilk in soda bread or of course there’s the lemon juice in milk trick too!

  32. Beth Sachs

    I love soda bread and I’ve made it loads since Gill taught us how to make it at the Foodies100 blog camp at River Cottage last year. Goats cheese, apple and blackberry is my current fave!

    1. Camilla

      Love the sound of the apple and blackberry, I have done an apple and pear cider one before which was fab, not a fan of goats cheese though I’m afraid.
