Irish Soda Bread (Gluten/Dairy/Soy/Nut/Corn Free)


You NEED to make this bread! I love Irish Soda Bread but haven't been satisfied with many of the gluten free versions I've tried. This one came out exactly how I wanted it to be. It has a crispy golden outer crust and the inside is slightly sweet. This bread will go over great at any of your St. Patty's Day celebrations!

Ingredients
2 cups gluten free flour mix
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
3 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
3/4 cups raisins
3 tablespoons grass fed butter or earth balance melted
1egg
1cup rice milk
1 tablespoon vinegar

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a baking sheet. In a bowl combine the flour mix, baking soda, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum, coconut palm sugar and raisins. 



In another bowl whisk the egg and melted butter.



Add egg mixture, rice milk and vinegar to dry ingredients and start to stir. 



You will have a very sticky batter. 



Transfer sticky dough to prepared baking sheet.



With slightly damp hands smooth over the top and form into a round shape. 



Make a slice in the top in a cross about 1/4 in deep. 



Place in the oven for 40 minutes. It should be lightly golden on the top and no longer wet inside. Let cool before slicing. You can also sprinkle powdered sugar on top if you'd like.
