Irish Soda Bread

I got this recipe from a first generation, Irish-American friend. It’s her mom’s recipe. The only ‘veganization’ I did was replace the buttermilk with non-dairy milk and vinegar. It smelled so good that I had to have a slice before I got set up for the photos. On the plus side, this way you can see how beautiful the inside looks!

3 cups of all-purpose  flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup sugar

1 cup raisins

2 cups non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)

2 Tbsp white vinegar

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray some oil in an 8 inch cake pan. In a small bowl or measuring cup add the vinegar to the milk, mix and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Whisk briskly for about a minute to distribute the baking powder and baking soda as evenly as possible. Stir in the raisins. Add half of the milk to the flour mixture and mix with your hands. Once the milk is absorbed add half of the remaining milk and stir. Depending on the amount of flour, you may not need all of the milk. Keep adding the milk in smaller amounts until the dough is wet, but not gooey. Turn onto a floured surface and need until the dough is no longer sticky to the touch. Place it in the prepared cake pan, cut a cross in the top and bake for about 1 hour.
