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!

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!
