Vegan Irish Soda Bread

The finished product!

St. Patrick’s Day is creeping upon us (in case you are wondering it is Sunday, March 17th). Here is a simple Vegan Irish Soda Bread recipe you can make using ingredients you probably already have in your house. The end result was not as dry as traditional Irish Soda bread but it had a similar flavor. This recipe was inspired by a new blog I am following, Hungry Gnomes.

Make an X in the uncooked dough


Ingredients
2 cups of soy milk
2 tsp. apple-cider vinegar
4 cups plus 2 tbsp. whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. raw sugar
1 cup raisins

Method 
1. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Whisk the soy milk and apple-cider vinegar until the milk becomes foamy. Set aside.
3. Whisk the flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar together.
4. Blend the wet and dry ingredients together. The dough will be very dry, this is good!

The batter will be dry

5. Add raisins!
6. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes adding the 2 tbps. of flour here if needed. You will know you need a little more flour if the dough is extremely sticky. Mine was and this really helped.
7. Place the batter in a 8 inch pie tin with parchment paper.
8. Sprinkle with a little flour.
9. Make an X using a serrated knife.
10. Bake for 45-50 minutes until a knife comes out clean.
11. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and let cool for about 10 minutes before eating.
12. Enjoy with a cup of tea or soy milk!
