Best Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread
Last year was my first St. Patrick’s Day celebration without wheat, dairy, eggs. I realized that the meal is pretty easy to adjust except I really missed the Irish soda bread. There is just something about the bread that I make only once a year that couldn’t resist. So into the kitchen I went. Actually, making this gluten free Irish Soda Bread was pretty easy once I figured out how to keep it dairy free.
It was actually the buttermilk that was throwing me off, so after some quick research I figured out that I could actually sour any of the dairy free milks just the same way I would do a quick substitution with regular milk and vinegar. Who knew!
To make dairy free buttermilk:
1 tbls vinegar
dairy free milk, enough to make one cup when combined with the vinegar
Combine vinegar and diary free milk in a glass and let sit 5-10 minutes to sour. Use as buttermilk!
I used a store bought gluten free flour, but any AP gluten free flour blend will work. This bread is amazing! It tastes, smells, and looks just like traditional Irish Soda Bread. It is absolutely amazing!!! It’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or anytime you have a craving for some good ol’ soda bread!
No St. Patrick’s Day meal is complete without traditional corned beef and cabbage (and by traditional…I mean traditional for Americans).
