Irish Soda Gluten Free Bread
Irish soda bread is an Irish tradition but not necessarily on the list of healthy gluten free foods. Our Irish Soda Gluten Free Bread recipe calls for gluten free flours which help keep it in the healthy gluten free foods category and is a very delicious gluten free bread. Although Irish soda bread has mostly been enjoyed as an Irish tradition and on Saint Patrick’s Day, we are quite certain this may be a gluten free bread you may just want to make on a regular basis. Gluten free foods and gluten free bread can taste good and be healthy for you.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet or use parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix flours, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add coconut oil and use a pastry cutter to mix thoroughly. Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk and the egg.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and then knead it slightly. Shape dough into a ball or egg shape, then lay on a prepared baking sheet.
In a small bowl combine melted butter or coconut oil, then whisk together ¼ cup buttermilk. Use a sharp knife to cut an “X” into the top of the loaf, then brush the loaf with the buttermilk mixture.
Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. This should take about 45-55 minutes but begin to check at about 40 minutes. Feel free to continue brushing the loaf with buttermilk mixture while baking if you choose.
The top will have a nice golden brown texture and the inside will be soft.
Each bit of this bread has a slight seductive sweetness in the background of the palette, and a light, airy texture filled with a creamy butter essence. This bread will pair well with sweet or bitter marmalades, honey, butter, with a salad, a stew, or just on its own. You can also use the bread to make a sandwich. This timeless classic is an old Irish tradition and is enjoyed by many on Saint Patrick’s Day.Holiday Recipes, Healthy Recipes, Almond Flour Recipes, Bread Recipes, Gluten Free Recipes
