This soda bread recipe is gluten-free and is the perfect component for any St. Patrick’s Day festivities!
3 cups gluten-free flour blend + 1/2 cup for kneading
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup almond milk mixed with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (this is your “buttermilk”)
3 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
The zest of one small orange
1 cup of raising
Preheat the oven to 350 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, sugar and salt.
Add the butter and mix completely.
Whisk the egg into the almond milk and ACV mixture and add to the flour mixture. The mixture will be very wet! Stir in the raisins and orange zest.
Place the extra 1/2 cup flour onto a cutting board and knead the dough with your hands, mixing the flour in. The dough is wet and sticky, so I found that coating my hands with the flour worked nicely.
Shape the dough into a large loaf and cut an X shape on top.
Place the loaf onto the parchment paper and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
Serve immediately with lots of butter or coconut oil spread on top.
