This recipe produces a loaf that is a bit smaller than the others, so that may be a consideration for you, but it’s so moist and flavorful, and I love its manageable size.

Preheat oven to 375° F.

If not using buttermilk, mix ¾ cup milk with 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar. Set aside to curdle.

Blend together gfJules Flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or two butter knives until the mixture resembles a pebbly, course meal.

Add baking soda to milk mixture, then stir into dry mix with egg white, raisins, and caraway seeds, if using. Mix with a fork or paddle mixing attachment until integrated.

Scoop dough into oiled and floured (with gfJules Flour) 7-inch glass bowl or 6-8 inch cake pan. Wet a rubber spatula with water and smooth the top of the ball of dough. Sprinkle lightly with gfJules Flour, then make a cross in the top with a large knife.

Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove to cool on a wire rack before slicing.

This classic take on Irish Soda Bread is next level. Made gluten free but still soft and flavorful. Yeast-free because it's soda bread, of course! |gfJules #Glutenfree #sodabread

  1. Not sure if it was mentioned or not but… Concerning the 3/4 regular milk with Apple Cider vinegar…. Is it 1 Tablespoon or 1 teaspoon?

    • Hi Jacquelynn, it’s 1 Tablespoon vinegar. That’s apart from the extra 2 Tablespoons of milk you add to the 3/4 cup — you do that whether or not you’re making your own “buttermilk.” Hope that clears it up!
