Description

Old fashioned whole wheat Irish soda bread that tastes like a mix between cinnamon raisin and rye bread. Perfect for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day!


Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut sugar (brown sugar works too)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 Tablespoons caraway seeds
  • 4 Tablespoons cold butter
  • 2 cups raisins, finely minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 scant cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Thoroughly combine flours, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and caraway seeds. With a pastry blender, cut in butter until finely blended and stir in minced raisins.
  3. Make the buttermilk by adding 1 1/2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar into a 2 cup liquid measuring cup. Add almond milk until you reach 1 1/2 cups of liquid.
  4. In a small bowl, beat the egg and the almond milk mixture. Add to flour mixture. Gently stir and fold until just combined. Form dough into a rounded, disk-shaped loaf a few inches thick and 7 to 8 inches wide.
  5. Place on prepared baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, mark top of loaf decoratively with 1/2-inch deep knife slashes. Bake on the middle oven rack for 50 – 60 minutes or until a knife or toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack and cool completely.
