This Vegan Irish Soda Bread has actually made me like St. Patrick’s Day more! It is warm, dense, hearty, and low in sugar. It is also really fun and easy to make! Last year, I think I made about 5 of them within a span of two weeks because everyone liked them so much.
The recipe is adapted from a great blog called Hungry Knomes. I remember being so excited when I found this recipe last year and it has really lived up to its expectation!
The weather was so beautiful this weekend! After walking the NYC High LIne, going for a run in Fort Green Park, and seeing A Gentlemen’s Guide to Love and Murder (which I highly recommend), I was hungry! This bread was a perfect addition to my Vegan Tomato Soup and Kale Salad.
- 2 cups of soy or almond milk
- 2 teaspoons apple-cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 cups plus 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 1 tablespoon raw sugar (you can add 1 to 2 more if you like a sweeter bread)
- 1 cup raisins
- powder sugar to garnish
- Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Whisk the soy milk and apple-cider vinegar until the milk becomes foamy. Set aside.
- Whisk the 4 cups of flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar together.
- Add the vanilla to the vinegar/milk combination.
- Blend the wet and dry ingredients together. The dough will be very dry, this is good!
- Add raisins!
- Knead the dough for about 5 minutes adding the 2 tablespoons 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.
- Place the batter in a 8 inch pie tin with parchment paper.
- Sprinkle with a little flour.
- Make an X using a knife.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes until a knife comes out clean.
- Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and let cool for about 10 minutes before eating.
- Enjoy with a cup of tea or soy milk!
