Fruit Soda Slims

In this video Paula creates a slim using a traditional soda bread recipe cooked on a griddle. There are some regional variations to what is added to the mix. This recipe is for a County Antrim classic that uses sultanas to make a delicious sweet treat.


Fruit Soda Slims

Metric Imperial

350g soda bread flour
50g dried fruit (sultanas, raisins or cranberries)
275ml buttermilk

12 oz soda bread flour
2 oz dried fruit (sultanas, raisins or cranberries)
1 cup buttermilk


  • Add the flour and dried fruit to the mixing bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre. Pour in the buttermilk gradually (you may not need the full measure). Mix with a fork until it forms a stiff dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface.
  • Knead lightly and roll out to 1 cm/½ inch thickness.
  • Cut into rectangles and leave to rest for five minutes.
  • Place on a hot griddle or dry frying pan. Cook each side until golden brown and hollow when tapped.
  • Split a slim open and eat warm with butter.
