Irish Soda Bread Recipe Please!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My DH loves cooking corned beef and cabbage for St. Patty's Day. A few years ago I encouraged him to try baking soda bread. We found a good recipe and it's now a staple of our St Patty's Day meal. I'm hoping to find a good gluten-free recipe and convince him to make that instead because a)I want to be able to eat bread too and b)I loathe the idea of regular flour coating my entire kitchen...he's not the cleanest of cooks. Bonus points for simplicity of ingredients. If he has to buy more than a few alternative flours he's not going to go for it. I've done some googling and found quite a few varieties on some popular gluten-free blogs but many seem quite involved.

Many thanks!

Since I was having issues with yeast breads, I did a search for soda bread myself, though I haven't tried any of the few recipes I collected. Here are a couple of links, the first one looks like it's not very complicated if you use a pre-made gluten-free flour blend.

Anyone else out there that has tried any of these, I'd like to try one of them myself soon.

Gluten Free Pantry has a recipe on their pancake mix that I have been using the last two years.

Here's one from Bette Hagman's cookbooks. It is moist on the inside and crusty like a biscuit on the outside. You could skip the caraway seeds if you want.

1-1/2 c gluten free flour mix (Bette Hagman's is white rice, tapioca, cornstarch, and potato starch flour, but probably any would do)

1/2 c tapioca flour

1-1/4 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 tsp salt

3 Tbl sugar

1/2 c butter

1 T caraway seeds

1 c sour cream

1 T milk

Combine all the dry ingredients except caraway seeds in a bowl. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Add caraway seeds and sour cream. Beat with a mixer about a minute. Form the dough into a round mound in a greased casserole. Brush top with milk. Bake at 375 for 50-55 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack. Slice when completely cooled.

This is a great recipe. Have not made it in a while. Thanks for the reminded (I only bake mine 26 minutes in an 8 x 8 casserole, though--may try cooking it longer and see what it's like with a crusty crust.)

I couldn't say how close of a recipe it is since my mom never made Irish soda breadm but there is a recipe on Elana's Pantry blog that got good reviews and I like most of her recipes since there are not alot of ingredients in them.
