Vegan Irish Soda Bread 

16 Mar

Soda bread is one of those wonderful childhood memories most of us have. My two grannies would always have freshly baked soda bread with lashings of butter and jam. This vegan soda bread recipe is in honour of them.  It’s also perfect to make for St. Patrick’s Day! – Enjoy, Eoin!

You will need:

450g white flour

400ml soya milk

75g dried fruit, raisins or cranberries

1 tbsp vinegar

1 ½  tsp bread soda

1 ½  tsp salt

Method:

In a jug, add your soy milk and vinegar. This will make “buttermilk”. Let it sit for a least 20 minutes, or if you can leave it overnight.

Preheat over to 200c.

In a large bowl, add the flour, salt and bread soda and mix thoroughly. Make a well in the centre and add the buttermilk and to form a moist dough, then add the dried fruit.

On a floured surface, lightly knead the dough to form a flat ball

Dust on top with a little flour and make the traditional X shape with a knife.

Place in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.

Then turn down the temperature to 180c for a further 25 minutes until the bread has a hollow sound when tapped on the bottom.

Cool and slice.

Best served warm with vegan butter and jam!
