Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread

Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! 

Irish Soda Bread 1

This family recipe has been passed down through the generations. I adapted it to make it gluten free. I actually baked this with my class today (most of them have never had Irish Soda Bread before) and they had so much fun!

Irish Soda Bread 2

What You Need:

2 Cups of Gluten Free Flour (I like Red Bob Mills 1:1 Baking Flour)

2 Tablespoons Sugar

2 Teaspoons of Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

4 Tablespoons COLD Vegan Butter (you can use regular butter)

1 Teaspoon Baking Soda

3/4 Cup Buttermilk

1 Egg White (you can use the whole egg but I typically can’t eat eggs because I am allergic to them but I will bake with them every once in a while)

1 1/2 cups of raisins

Irish Soda Bread 4

What To Do:

In a food processor, add flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cube the butter into the flour mixture and pulse until the mixture is crumbly. Put the mixture into a mixing bowl. Add the baking soda to the milk and whisk until it gets frothy. Stir into the dry mixture with the egg. Add the raisins and mix until everything is combined. Spray a baking sheet or cake pan and transfer the dough. Make an X in the middle so the dough cooks evenly. Cook at 375 for 30 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean.

This bread is super yummy and moist.  It wasn’t dry at all and topped with a little vegan butter, it was perfect!

Hope everyone enjoys their holiday (Irish or not) 🙂

Gluten Free, Vegan, Dairy Free Cinnamon Pumpkin Bread

Gluten Free, Vegan, Dairy Free Cinnamon Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread 1

I love anything with pumpkin! It reminds me of the Fall season and the crisp, colorful leaves falling down.   Pumpkin has a lot of surprising health benefits. It helps protects our eye sight with more than 200% of your daily intake of Vitamin A and is rich in beta-carotene. The same carotenoids that protect our eyes also protect our skin. It fights against those free-radicals and puts up an invisible shield to prevent them. The most surprising fact about pumpkins is that it contains more potassium than a banana.  I am extremely allergic to bananas and they were one of my favorite fruits. Knowing that if I eat more pumpkin, I can get enough potassium into my lifestyle is a win for me! You can substitute bananas into almost any recipe (baking wise) and I think I will start experimenting more with pumpkin!

Pumpkin Bread 3

What you need:

2 cups gluten free flour (I like using Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Baking Flour)

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 1/4 cups pumpkin puree (I like to get a BPA free can)

1/4 cup coconut oil

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup fresh apple cider

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, and oats to sprinkle on top

Pumpkin Bread 4

What to do:

In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and the spices.

In a separate bowl, mix together the pumpkin puree, coconut oil, honey, sugar, vanilla, and apple cider. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients.

Pumpkin Bread 5

Pour batter into a loaf pan (9×5 works) sprayed with coconut oil. Add a thin layer of brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin seeds, and oats. Bake at 350 degrees 45-55 minutes. (I checked mine at 40 and 45 minutes and it was still a little gooey).

Pumpkin Bread 6

Can I just say that this Pumpkin Bread was amazing and it might be the best pumpkin bread that I have ever had! I can’t wait to make this for the holidays and share with my family and friends.
