Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread

Haha ok so I knew Irish soda bread was a thing. I heard about it in my life but never really ate it until a few weeks ago.

As St. Patrick’s Day approached I wanted to nod to my Irish roots and full up my blog with some fun and festive Paddy’s inspired recipes. Irish soda bread popped into my brain. 

So, to catch everyone up to speed.. soda bread is a form of quick bread that using baking soda as the leveraging agent instead of traditional yeast. The lactic acid in the buttermilk mixed with the baking soda to make little bubbles that make the bread fluffy.

And so, the testing began. Irish soda bread is seemingly easy enough, but I make things a bit more complicated with my insistence on using almond flour. It was a bit tricky to get right.

You can keep your soda bread plain, like I am today, or mix in some cinnamon and raisins for a sweet twist.

I’ve toasted up my Irish soda bread and topped it with butter or cream cheese or strawberry cream cheese (omg so good). Personally I really want to try making some French toast with this. I feel like it would be amazing.

Affix the c-dough hook attachment to the mixer. Place the almond flour, tapioca flour, monk fruit sweetener, baking soda, baking powder, and sea salt in the bowl of a standing mixer. Turn the mixer on and slowly pour the buttermilk into the bowl.

Once the dough comes together, transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use your hands to pat and smooth the dough into a ball. Sprinkle the ball with additional tapioca flour. Use a sharp knife to cut a small “x” into the top of the ball. 

Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until it sounds hard when you knock on it.  Allow the bread to cool for about 30 minutes before you slice into it with a bread knife.
