If you’ve been thinking about getting into the kitchen to cook with your kids, this homemade soda bread recipe is a pretty fantastic place to start.
Not only is it perfect to serve with your St. Patrick’s Day dinner on Sunday, but the short ingredient list (only five!) and absence of sharp knives and heavy-duty appliances makes this even more appealing for little chefs.
Soda bread is made without yeast or a lengthy rising time. In fact, it’s one of the only breads that can be made, baked and served in about 30 minutes flat. This basic recipe can be made sweet by adding some chocolate chips or raisins, or savoury with the addition of cheddar cheese and herbs. And because the dough is so forgiving, you can bake one large loaf or divide it into six individual portions so it more resembles a hearty scone—perfect for serving alongside a bowl of chili, stew or favourite soup.

Putting a fun spin on an already favourite food is a great way to get the kids in the kitchen, and recently I did exactly that when I asked my 10 year old to make grilled cheese sandwiches in our waffle maker.
The genius of using the waffle iron to cook a grilled cheese is that the stove top isn’t required, making it safer for smaller children to start working in the kitchen. The sandwich is cooked evenly on both sides, not only saving you time, but also the hassle of flipping the bread over—not always an easy task for small hands.
I’m not going to lie—I was completely charmed by these myself, mostly thanks to the perfectly golden and crispy bread filled with oozy melted cheese. Served alongside a bowl of soup, it just might be possible to get the kids to make your dinner tonight.
