I have been procrastinating for a couple of years (seriously) with making Irish soda bread. My mom gave me a recipe or 2 and I have like 5-6 different versions pinned on Pinterest. I think this recipe is finally simple enough for me to feel comfortable to make. I'm seriously hoping this will help in my efforts to reduce my yeast intake. Yeast is literally in everything so having a Candida Overgrowth is killer!
Irish Soda Bread
-1 1/2 cups white rice flour (I will combine the measurements for the flour and use the GF flour mix I have from the store, I'm currently using Pillsbury GF Flour mix)
-1/2 cup tapioca flour
-1/2 cup white sugar (Raw Sugar)
-1 teaspoon baking soda
-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon salt (Kosher Salt)
-1 large egg
-1 cup buttermilk (if dairy-free use buttermilk substitute) (for a sweet version I'll use Vanilla Almond milk and for a savory or plain version, unsweetened cashew or almond milk might be best)
-3/4 cup currants or raisins
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Spray a 9 inch round cake pan (I'd grease the pan with Smart Balance)
-Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
-Whisk together wet ingredients in small bowl.
-Add the wet ingredients to the dry bowl and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.
-Stir in the currants/raisins, if using them.
-Pour mixture into the greased pan.
-Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
-Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.
*Wrap bread in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and let stand overnight for the best flavor. (This tip is from site and is very useful!)
