Hello, so tomorrow is St Patrick’s Day. I couldn’t wait for it to come along so I could make something. What I made was a gluten free Irish soda bread. It was so easy. I hope my friend Lynnae likes it! I made it for her because I would like to learn more about gluten free cooking. It’s not always easy but I love the challenge. Irish soda bread was the thing to do. Like they say, everyone is Irish on St Patrick’s Day and I wanted to do my part in celebrating. I have the recipe; it is posted down below.
2 cups gluten free flour blend
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon xanthum gum
1/2 tsp sugar – for the top of the bread
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 tsp caraway seeds
1 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a round pan or cast iron skillet.
Combine the gluten free flour blend, raisins, caraway seeds, sugar, baking soda, xantham gum and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg and buttermilk. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet. Stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Pour into the cake pan or cast iron skillet.
Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack, for 10 minutes, before removing from the pan. Wrap bread in plastic wrap or aluminum foil for freshness.
So have fun making the bread and enjoy!!!
