    The season of green is upon us once again and a Saint Patrick’s Day celebration wouldn’t be complete without a hearty piece of Irish soda bread. Reminiscent of a large scone, this recipe yields delightfully sweet bread. My Irish friends tell me a good crumbly piece of “Leprechaun Bread” goes great with a sharp cheddar cheese. I think a dab of butter and sprinkle of cinnamon is a nice topper as well.
    Ingredients:
    1 cup brown rice flour
    ¼  cup tapioca flour
    ¼  cup potato starch
    1 teaspoon xanthan gum
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    ½ teaspoon unflavored gelatin
    ½ teaspoon nutmeg
    ¼ cup buttermilk
    6 tablespoons melted butter
    1 tablespoon honey
    1 egg, beaten
    ½ cup raisins or currants, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350° F and line a standard loaf pan or baking dish with parchment paper.
    In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients until well-incorporated.
    In a second bowl, stir together buttermilk, butter, honey, egg and soaked raisins.
    Hollow out a small well in the dry ingredients and slowly pour in the wet mixture. Stir until combined and sticky. Form into a loaf and transfer to baking pan. Cook for 35-40 minutes until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
    Let cool and remove from parchment-line dish.
