Gluten Free Traditional Irish Soda Bread, GF, DF, SF


For years I have been making traditional Irish soda bread, not the sweet bread with caraway seeds and dates or raisins, but the original type that is a simple loaf made with flour, buttermilk, baking soda and salt. It is so quick and easy that I made it a few times a week, then stopped when I went gluten-free. I've been wanting to try to recreate a gluten and dairy-free version and thanks to some suggestions from members at the Society for the Preservation of Irish Soda Bread Facebook group, I was able to make an incredible loaf that doesn't taste gluten or dairy-free.

2 cups gf oat flour (you can also use buckwheat, sorghum or millet)

  1. Can I replace xanthum gum with egg whites or chia seeds?

    1. Hi Nicole Michelle, I would suggest psyllium husks but ground chia might work. When I need to substitute xanthan gum, my best results are with psyllium or guar gum. I would be interested to hear how it comes out with chia if you use it. Thanks!
